After taking a small hiatus, Second Life photographer Brady Rowell has returned to take on a new photography project centered on the Second Life Gay Community. Aptly titled "Pride and Diversity", the Photo Exhibition is planned to open for public viewing in August 2010 and will attempt to capture the uniqueness of individual avatars from the gay community while illustrating the diversity of the community itself. “I want to show how different members of the gay community in SL are and why these differences, when put together, make the gay community in SL great”, commented Brady when proposing this project to JakeC Hotshot and Baz Ceawlin, the owners of the main gallery at Jake’s Club Resort.
Brady has been the featured artist showcased in the gallery since it's opening in March 2009. “We are thrilled to have him back,” Jake comments, “and we’re looking forward to this exhibition. Brady is a talented artist who we are proud to lend our continued support to.” Jake also pointed out, “Brady’s timing is perfect! By the time his project is completed, the Jake’s sim and galley will be located in the Gay Archipelago. We will be able to share his work with the whole community.” Brady has been holding an ongoing series of open casting calls to find just the right individuals for his project. When asked why he is holding open casting calls for models, Brady says“... one goal is to feature people in this project who I have never photographed before. It should be all new faces.” In the end, only 15 people will be selected.
