Naked Camera: Photography by Biron
The photographer Biron is a celebrated international camera-guru located in San Francisco, California, USA and Paris, France. His eyes and lens have captured many moments of queer culture and community worldwide. His work is featured in a multitude of sites and venues in both the printed and electronic media. Many of his subjects are nude, even though his artistic endeavor isn't all nudecentric or even exclusively queercentric. His work is a celebration of life.
Biron is well known for a wide-range of subjects but his fame is from his cutting-edge images of the GLBT community. The artsts' philosophy is best expressed in a quote on his website: "Art only exists beyond the confines of accepted behavior." (Biron, 1975). He is represented in San Francisco at the St. Nicholas Gallery, the Kinsey Institute's Erotic Art Gallery in Bloomington and the Au Bonheur du Jour Gallery in Paris, France.
Personally, I'm an avid fan of Biron's art, especially his nude images. They always capture what is both beautiful, interesting and natural about the human body. Somehow, Biron, the photographer, manages to translate to film that what reflects the richness and uniqueness of our queer lives. Most recently, I featured two of his seasonal pictures on the January 1, 2013, holiday entry here at DQN In Northern Virginia.
