NARROWSBURG, NY — Photographs of bodybuilders by Brian Moss will be featured in the exhibition titled “Body.Built,” opening with a reception on Friday, July 29 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Alliance Gallery at the Delaware Arts Center on Main Street. The exhibit will be on view through August 20, 2011.
Moss, himself a product of the bodybuilding scene, having founded the gym chain Better Bodies in New York in 1982, documents the journey from gym to hotel room to pump-up room to stage as the ultimate insider.
“My images are unguarded, honest, and voyeuristic,” said Moss. “Whether they capture backstage scenes at a bodybuilding contest or training in the gym, these images are imbued with an intimacy that has never been seen before.”
Free and open to the public, the exhibit is sponsored by the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance, the Arts Council for Sullivan County, NY, and is made possible with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts.
