RayKo Photo Center presents the final selections from an open call for photographic work exploring the genre of portraiture and the varying characteristics of us humans. You’ll see everything from female Elvis impersonators on horseback galloping across a beach in Scotland to rich silver prints of Arbus-like twins from New Orleans to the giant color photographs of Mark Menjivar’s You Are What You Eat: a series of portraits made by examining the interiors of refrigerators in homes across the US, shot with an 8x10” camera. Ah, gorgeous large format film! You’ll also see the pictures from Fritz Leidtke’s Skeleton in the Closet series. Intimate portraits and personal stories of those who struggle with eating disorders, shot with Polaroid film, something else we love to love and don’t want to disappear.

Come see how strange people can be and also how beautiful and sad and powerful and desperate and perfect….
