THE LOVERS AND A POEM BY LEONARD COHEN

“You have the lovers, they are nameless, their histories only for each other, and you have the room, the bed, and the windows. Pretend it is a ritual. Unfurl the bed, bury the lovers, blacken the windows, let them live in that house for a generation or two. No one dares disturb them…” -Poem by Leonard Cohen.

Their lips are bruised with new and old bruises. Her hair and his beard are hopelessly tangled. When he puts his mouth against her shoulder she is uncertain whether her shoulder has given or received the kiss. All her flesh is …

RUDE BOY & IT-GIRL

We are young Ukrainian Artists from Kiev. Our inspiration is based on everything that goes against conventional morality We are fond of unusual characters who don’t fear to live by their own rules. – GORSAD IT-GIRL “Yura is Ukrainian 9-year old bully from village. We met him smoking near the country computer club and immediately fell in love with this character. Small boy who behaved like real badass. Yura told us that he is mad gamer and that he escaped from orphanage to play counter strike.” – GORSAD photography by Gorsad, interview by Juliana Bojorquez  VAGA: Tell me about your collaboration. How did the three of you begin GORSAD?  We are Gorsad, Kiev based artists. Our group is a collaboration between two guys and a girl: Victor, Julian, and Maria. We met at each other at university where the three of us studied at the Faculty of Arts. Originally we were separate artists, but while working in a joint workshop we realized that collaboration is exactly what we needed. So we successfully work together now. …

A Quiet Confidence – Master photographer: John Dugdale

–Words and Interview by Robbie Sosa. Image: A Turbulent Dream – 1996 – All images courtesy of Holden Luntz gallery. It’s 1992 and fear has cast its unending shadow over the gay community in New York City. Reeling from a mysterious illness, a thirty year-old named John Patrick Dugdale lies on a metal bed in a cold and drafty hospital room. From afar, the scene is straight out of war-torn Beirut – but this battle is taking place inside Manhattan’s St. Vincent Hospital. Dugdale is not alone, for there are dozens of other young, frail men on the frontlines of death. It’s a dark moment for a city wrapped in the clenched fist of a virus called HIV/AIDS. This is where Dugdale’s journey to triumph begins. Continue below.. Born in 1960 in the working class suburban town of Stamford, Connecticut, Dugdale dreamed of an artist’s life, “I thought of myself as being born in the wagon of a traveling van, just like the Cher song. I was a Guido, a real rough-around-the-edges kind of guy, raised …

Clenched Soul a photo editorial and a Poem by Pablo Neruda

“We have lost even this twilight. No one saw us this evening hand in hand, while the blue night dropped on the world… Sometimes a piece of sun burned like a coin in my hand. I remembered you with my soul clenched in that sadness of mine that you know…” by Chilean poet Pablo Neruda. Photography by San Francisco-based photographer Hana Haley We have lost even this twilight. No one saw us this evening hand in hand while the blue night dropped on the world. I have seen from my window the fiesta of sunset in the distant mountain tops. Sometimes a piece of sun burned like a coin in my hand. I remembered you with my soul clenched in that sadness of mine that you know. Where were you then? Who else was there? Saying what? Why will the whole of love come on me suddenly when I am sad and feel you are far away? The book fell that always closed at twilight and my blue sweater rolled like a hurt dog at …
