Private Exhibitionism

Tanyth Berkeley Untitled #2 Frequency SeriesTanyth Berkeley GraceHo-hum. Another photo exhibit, another freak show. Well, that's what I thought initially when I checked out Tanyth Berkeley's images at Bellwether gallery. Yes, the show spotlights albinos, transgender women, and folks who hang out around 42nd Street. However, after viewing Berkeley's video of hotdogging roller skaters in Central Park, this show's theme hit home: people's fierce drive for individuality, which borders exhibitionism, but at the same time their need for anonymity.
