Shooting bohemian figures from the cultural sidelines is certainly not a new photographic practice, and Georg Gatsas rough environments have their historic anchors in works from Goldin to McGinley. But unlike his predecessors, Gatsas doesn’t seem to be trafficking some collective intimacy or tender domestic vision behind his band of night dwellers and music makers no suffering artistic soul just like the rest of us when we get a glimpse into their bedrooms or recording studios. Rather, these performers seem to run their lives performing. They carry their personalities on and off stage without a clear shift. Strong, tightly cultivated identities set the mood here, and the subjects stare out at us as if daring us to consider them.
