Art Imitates LiveCamNetwork

Written By: Greg Jones

(Montreal) January 25, 2005 – Performers from live video chat site LiveCamNetwork.com will be featured in an upcoming exhibit by Montreal photographer Mia Donovan.

The exhibit, called “Stripped”, will present a series of “lush, large-scale photographs of women who provide their body to the adult entertainment industry”. Among those featured are Laurelle and 2much.net poster girl Deja, as well as women from other facets of the sex business, from strippers to porn stars.

Donovan, whose work has been on the web as well as independant newspapers and print advertising, seeks to provide more than behind-the-scenes peeks into the trade by setting a counterpoint to the stereotyped images normally associated with the business by documenting the day-to-day reality.

The LiveCamNetwork chat hostesses were photographed over the summer of 2004 in a variety of work-oriented settings as part of a year-long project which reflects Donovan’s continued interest in notions of sexual fantasy.

The exhibit opening will take place Saturday January 29, at 2:00 pm, and will run until March 19 at Montreal’s Observatoire 4, located at 372 Ste. Catherine street west, gallery 426. Donovan herself will be present, though she will be meeting the public at the space on Saturday, March 5th, when the exposition will have had a chance to be seen.
