Gay Photographers at Work

Recently I came across an article about an Australian photographer, Tina Fiveash. In 2001, she and another artist Deborah Kelly created a public art project, a series of simulated advertisements highlighting heterosexual privilege called: "Hey, Hetero!" They posted the photographs on billboards & in magazines all over the world. Her more recent work (2008) is a series of mock travel posters typical of the 1940's, 1950's era. I think this poster is especially funny.

From the "Hey, Hetero!" series......
