Joshua Aronson Explores Gender & Sexuality Through Striking Portraiture

As part of an exhibition entitled “I Thought About Posting This.”

New York-based photographer Joshua Aronson recently launched a solo exhibition at Chicago’s Congruent Space. Entitled “I Thought About Posting This,” the week-long show displayed stills, fashion snaps, nude portraiture, and documentary materials. Through these works, the artist aims to introduce new dialogues on gender and sexuality.

“‘I Thought About Posting This’ is an installation of my work exploring the role of photography in how we see ourselves in today’s image-saturated landscape. Still life, documentary, portraiture, and fashion images play against each other to mirror the way in which youth identity toys with space neither left nor right, black nor white, nor pink nor blue today, but somewhere in between,” said the artist to HYPEBEAST.

For those who missed the show, tour the exhibition in the slideshow above and then head over to Joshua Aronson’s official website to view more projects. Elsewhere in art, check out this week’s Best Art Drops.
