    About The Work

    The photograph, Rosa, 2018, was taken by Prem Sahib in his studio, following a private screening of Rosa Von Praunheim’s 1971 film, It Is Not the Homosexual Who Is Perverse, But the Society in Which He Lives, on August 31st 2016.

    The image depicts a set that was purpose-built for the audience, made to replicate an iconic moment in the film where a group of gay men lounge around on a mattress, discussing with frankness their experiences of life and sexuality. The image preserves the detritus of the social gathering, poignantly encapsulating a residual moment, both as monument and homage.

    The size of the photograph, a standard print size of 9 x 13 cm, is important to Sahib. It is intimate in scale and references an old family photograph.
