Zak Krevitt returns to New York's Ray Gallery with a new series of photographs entitled "Alpha, Beta, Omega." The show features work from Zak’s time documenting and participating in the human puppy fetish community. The work explores both the critical and cultural aspects of the community and its participants, navigating the space not as a voyeur, but as a card carrying member.
One of the aspects of puppy play is an organized escape from the technological world and its rigors. Instead it's replaced by a therapeutic, zen like state of mind, where consciousness is transformed into a series of primal desires.
Krevitt examines this through portrait sittings and documentation of fetish community events. In and out of headspace, many Pups continue their allegiance to the community and one another in packs, which are social groups structured after traditional wild dog packs, consisting of an alpha, betas, and an omega.
"Alpha, Beta, Omega," will be on view from September 1 through October 1. The opening reception will be on September 1 from 6-9 p.m. After the opening reception, the gallery is open by appointment only, please use this contact email to set up an appointment: firstname.lastname@example.org.
