Last month I received a lovely email asking me if I would like to be a collaborator to a new music and art festival in Madrid end of January sponsored by Absolut.
They were interested in the furry project and since it hasn’t been shown in a physical space outside of the U.K, I thought why not!
The themes of the festival; equality, love and responsibility to the future resonate with the reasoning and ethics behind At Home With The Furries. Plus they revealed their intention to print eight images absolutely huge. Each one six feet tall, from a scaffold.
There’s also the added excitement of the fact that local furries from Madrid will be in attendance, which is always helpful in bringing the work to life. We did this with Fix Photo where some of the actual furries in the project suited up for the launch party of the exhibition. The word I received back from attendees was that my work was the best part of the exhibition, I’m not biased honest.
But what are the #furries you ask, what is your project, what the fur is going on?
I’ll be heading out there to see the work in the flesh or the fur, so to speak. Plus I’m also planning to meet with a few local furries to work on some new shoots. Because when in Rome…or Madrid you have to go the whole hog!
The date for your diaries is 26th January 2018 and the event runs from 9pm-1am. Address is: PABELLÓN SATÉLITE
Calle Ferial, 9. Casa de campo.
