Passengers - PLUME

Passengers - PLUME

by Isa Brito

Silver gelatin print

Isa Brito’s photographs from her exhibition Passengers are telling stories of New York’s street life in the 1980s and 90s. Brito’s love affair with the camera helped her obtain a provocative and poetic body of black and white photographic work. Her keen imagery document moments in time, many which would not be seen without her gritty photography of New York’s underground that consists of drag queens, club kids, and performers. Brito’s photographs take viewers into a world of bizarre, enthralling nightlife affairs that go beyond imagination. 

 

A photograph from the Drag Queen Beauty Pageant at the bar, Sally’s Hideaway, in Times Square where Brito was a judge that night in 1992.

 

Brito's personal story:

              
I had heard of Sally’s Hideaway and decided to go there one night to photograph. Upon my arrival I discovered that a pageant was taking place. One of the judges was unable to be there, and I was casually asked in the dressing room to be the replacement judge. I gladly accepted. Little did I know this event had a multitude of categories and I was there until 6 am. I was deeply touched by how much care and creativity went into every detail. It was a memorable night.
