OVTV: (TIME WARP) The curse of 'Man and baby': Athena, and the birth of a legend!

L'enfant, better known as Man and Baby is a 1987 photographic poster depicting a male model (Adam Perry) holding a young baby. The image, photographed by Spencer Rowell, was published and distributed in the 1980s by British company Athena Posters. The image reportedly sold over 5 million copies, making it among the best-selling posters ever. The photograph was said to herald the "sensitive but sexy New Man" aesthetic.

In a 2004 British television documentary about L'Enfant, The Model, the Poster and 3,000 Women, the baby was identified as Greek-Cypriot Stelios Havatzias. Stelios currently lives in Limassol Cyprus with his family and works as a lawyer. Perry claimed that as a consequence of his poster fame, he had slept with 3,000 women.

(OUTscene TV) A Beautiful tribute to LATE, photographer Brian Putnam!




Photographer Brian Putnam was found dead Dec. 23 in West Hollywood, according to Frontiers magazine. He was 48. I was Facebook friends with Brian and admired his work.

Putnam's sister announced his death publicly Dec. 29 on his Facebook page.

The Long Beach Press-Telegram reported: Putnam’s sister, Tracy, posted on his Facebook page that the death was an apparent suicide following a 15-year battle with alcoholism and depression, but Lt. Joe Bale of the coroner’s office said an official cause of death has not yet been established.

Putnam’s body was found at a parking structure at 8600 Santa Monica Blvd., Bale said. ...Putnam was recognizable around West Hollywood from photographing numerous LGBT festivities, including the GLAAD Awards, the Christopher Street West Pride Parade in West Hollywood, Bingo at Hamburger Mary’s, Musical Mondays at Eleven, the LA Gay & Lesbian Center gala, the NOH8 Campaign and numerous other events.

(OUTscene NW) PRE-view: The Continuous Thread at Mind Unwind‏ in West Seattle!!

Inspired by using “thread” in a double entente of meaning, the first literal interpretation of “thread” involves textiles and fashion, a second, less obvious interpretation incorporates the “thread” of thoughts that develop during storytelling, an ancient form of communication. The continuum began with curator, Pam Cooper, based in New York and followed a communication thread across the U.S. to Seattle in collaboration with Mind Unwind’s curator, Krystal Kelley. Cooper and Kelley are presenting “The Continuous Thread,” which features these 6 artists: (3 from NYC and 3 from Seattle).

Marion Behr, drawing with pen on paper just letting the thoughts flow, mulling over the events of the day. Robroy Chalmers re purposes dark dense prints and drawings referencing his recent move across the USA, making them fly and lightly swirl around the room. Marcia Widenor’s knitted paper clothing charges the viewer to wonder about the stories that inspired the fabrication of these beautiful objects. Aileen Bassis asks viewers to draw places from the past on note cards, ‘Memory Maps’. Thinking about the nature of memory and how this has fascinated people throughout time she decided to use quotes from different philosophers, along with the photographs taken at the time, to document their experience of memory. Anna Hurwitz uses her collection of Barbie Dolls in an installation called “Stitch ‘n Bitch”. Jewelry designer, Blythe Carling is weaving her thread with metal and stones and will have pieces on exhibit and for sale.
