Rian Dundon's Photos on Out Traveler

January 5, 2011 (All day)

Rian Dundon, Class of 2012, now has photos up at Out Traveler on gay nightlife in China. "Photographer Rian Dundon first visited China in 2005, to stay in a remote city in Hunan province. A 10-month stay became five years, while Dundon pursued projects on youth identity, fringe cultures, and urban growth. Among his stunning images are sets that uniquely capture a pivotal period in gay life there, with moving pictures of the secretive bars and cabarets that double as pickup spots and prostitution venues. Most of the young employees had fled rural life and the bigotry there for the slightly less unwelcome big cities."
