Ves Pitts

Ves Pitts’ exhibition is a collection of Baroque photographs that explore a kaleidoscope of macabre places and erotic personas. From the dark cavernous clubs of New York and Amsterdam to the elaborate religious shrines of Rome, Mr. Pitts has documented a variety of the eccentric that reflects on art history and early silent cinema. Inspired by the Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and Hieronymus Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights, Mr. Pitts adds a hint of Southern gothic debauchery to create photographs that float in and out of the unconscious and authentic truth.
