A.I.R. Gallery is pleased to announce the exhibition of Jeanette May’s captivating photographs depicting attractive men in their contemporary Bachelor Pads.

Inspired by 1960s movies and magazine spreads highlighting the phenomenon of the “bachelor pad,” Jeanette May stages the contemporary bachelor in his metropolitan dwelling. The original bachelor pads were conspicuously heterosexual and masculine in design — filled with the latest gadgets and signifiers of hedonistic pleasure. May’s photographs examine whether the current version evolved or if the reel-to-reel sound systems were merely swapped for iPod stations and large screen TVs. The pad may define one’s economic or cultural standing, provide refuge, or seduce potential lovers. May’s images raise these issues while offering a voyeuristic peek into the private living space of single men.
