    About The Work

    During the years 2007-2018 while working for publications like Fantastic Man, Purple, Apartamento, and PIN-UP, Daniel Trese photographed the city of Los Angeles documenting its coming of age art scene, unique urban landscape, iconic fashion personalities, and current queer culture. Almost entirely shot on film, Surface Streets is a poetic tribute to a decentralized city that has recently attracted a new breed of creatives excited by LA’s cultural future and up-for-grabs identity. 

    Trese pieces together his own version of this eclectic community with portraits of Peggy Moffitt, Don Bachardy, A.L. Steiner, Ashland Mines, Karis Wilde, Joel Gibb, Sean Delear, and Mariah Garnett, to name a few, immersed in the physical city itself with its sprawling strip malls, agave plants, and massive boulevards. Surface Streets is an ode to a city still becoming itself and a celebration of the ambiguous time before identity sets in. 

    Encompassing over 200 photographs, the exhibition includes a series Trese took at Tom of Finland Foundation in 2014, and at the home of Peter Berlin earlier this year.

    Daniel Trese: Surface Streets follows Tom of Finland Store online exhibitions with Jack Pierson, Bruce LaBruce and Silvia Prada.
