MoCP Behind the Lens: Lorenzo Triburgo


About The Event

MoCP Behind the Lens: Lorenzo Triburgo

Watch the video:

Join the MoCP and photographer Lorenzo Triburgo for a virtual sneak peek into his studio! Using an understated yet radical approach that includes portraiture, landscape, and studio practice, Lorenzo Triburgo reclaims this power for LGBTQ communities and other individuals traditionally ignored by media and popular culture or conquered by an outsider’s gaze. Working in collaboration with his subjects, Triburgo amplifies their voices to an audience that might otherwise ignore them or keep them at safe aesthetic distance. Lorenzo currently develops curriculum and teaches Gender & Sexuality Studies and Art at Oregon State University (online) and lives in Brooklyn, NY.
