In this episode, Jordan Weitzman sits down with photographer Ian Lewandowski. His work, mostly comprised of pictures of men, speak to themes of desire, representation and gender identity in visual culture. His portraits, mostly made with an 8x10 view camera are raw and refined, tender and mysterious. They seem to resist being reduced to any one simple reading. yet express his strong, original vision.
Originally from Northwest Indiana, Lewandowski moved to New York where he pursued his BA at Pratt. He currently lives in Brooklyn and is an MFA Candidate at SUNY Purchase.. Aside from his photographic practice, he also co-curates Slow Youth with his husband, artist Anthony Cudahy, which publishes zines and artist books.
