OHM, "NEW TERRITORY"

Reception with the artist june 5, 2015 7-10 pm

New Territory is a self-portrait project exploring issues of identity and sexuality. In specific, the series examines the relationship between the self and others in an intimate context, both privately and publicly, opening up a dialog about race, gender, role play, seduction, longing, and acceptance. 

By photo- graphic and exposing my own insecurity and vulnerability in different situations, self-discovery is also revealed. Each image from this series stems from how I view myself and how I view the world.

The making of these portraits is a personal experience and a journey into a complex layer where identity is seen, judged, but rarely discussed. It is my personal desire for an openness and a search to understand not only who and what I am, and how the world understands me.While this project is an awakening response to an understanding of self, it also signifies a universal search for the place we belong to.

Ohm is an award-winning international photographer and filmmaker. Bangkok-born, U.S.-based artist, Ohm’s works often deal with controversial issues involving identity, sexuality, sub-cultures, and underprivileged group of people.
