In the Galleries: Inframen

Arieli's infrared portraits of dancers have a ghostly beauty as they reveal imperfections in men at the peak of their youth.




Nir Arieli’s upcoming show “Inframen” takes viewers one layer deeper, stripping male dancers not only of clothes but also skin. Arieli uses an infrared photographic technique to photograph underneath the outermost layers of skin revealing sun damage, stretch marks, hidden marks, and scars. His images fuse masculinity and vulnerability, finding imperfections in the idealized male form.

"Inframen" will open Thursday at Daniel Cooney Fine Art gallery in New York City.
