In the Veil of Cashmere: Poet and Photographer Thomas Roma Takes Tender Portraits of A Secret Erotic Eden

Steven Kasher Gallery presents Thomas Roma: In the Vale of Cashmere. This exhibition of Roma’s most recent project consists of an intricate sequence of 75 black and white portraits and landscapes photographed in a secluded section of Prospect Park, a meeting place where black, Latino and other gay and bisexual men have long sought one another out to fulfill their wish for community and to satisfy sexual desire. This is Roma’s first major New York exhibition of new photographs since his acclaimed solo exhibition Come Sunday at the Museum of Modern Art in 1996. The book In the Vale of Cashmere will be published by powerHouse Books in conjunction with the exhibition. Thomas Roma: In the Vale of Cashmere will be on view starting today and running until December 19, 2015 at Steven Kasher Gallery, 515 W. 26th St., New York, NY
