Richard Renaldi is one of my favorite photographers, and one day, I’ll probably take out a second mortgage so I can buy one of his larger-than-life prints. Unfortunately, I’ll probably have to take out a third mortgage so I can build a new wall on which to hang it.
Richard Renaldi is also one of Jonno‘s closest friends from his New York days. Every so often, he’ll swing through for a visit with his equally handsome, talented partner, Seth. Good people, those two.
Speaking of New York, if you’re there, or if you’re going to be there between now and May 28, stop by The Gallery at Hermès (yes: Hermès, bitches) to see his “Touching Strangers” series. Philadelphians, you can view the “Fall River Boys” series (from which the photo above was taken) until May 2 at Sol Mednick Gallery. And Venetians (ciao, ragazzi!) check out his work at the Galleria Contemporaneo through next week. There’s a full schedule and more on Richard’s personal blog.
This concludes Art Beefcake Wednesday.
