Christ Among the Leatherpeople


Photograph by Elisabeth Ohlson, from the exhibition "Ecce Homo", the most publicised Swedish photography exhibition of the century. It consists of twelve pictures of Jesus in the company of homosexuals, and is inspired by biblical themes by artists such as Michelangelo, Doré and Caravaggio. Artist's Note: "This photo is based on a painting by Danish artist, Carl Bloch - a painting with Jesus standing amidst slaves and prisoners. Leather gays and lesbians wear their distinctive garb. It felt natural for me to be able to set them in this tender picture of Jesus. I have been photographing men and women in leather for years. This taught me much about friendship, community, love, and trust - and my prejudices vanished."
