Four Star Gallery
In the Pamela deMarris' black and white photograph "Catocala Man II," a man with long, flowing white hair is seated at a desk, staring into a mirror. There is, in the mirror, the reflection of a woman's nude torso. The male subject of this photograph is James Meadows, the photographer's husband. Elsewhere, in these photos, you see this subject staring skyward, sleeping/brooding in bed, and serving guests in a family dinner while dressed in a tuxedo. The campiness of many of these photos contrasts with the long-suffering expression on Meadows' face. (He moonlighted from his position as an M.D. for these photo sessions.) All of these photos are painterly in that they are posed (in both color and b&w film), but the most intriguing photos dial down the camp. In "Equestrian," Meadows poses, scantily-clad if at all, awash in red light. His face is hidden but he's poised for action, like a racehorse at its starting mark.
