Lissa Rivera: Beautiful Boy at Newport Art Museum

For her ongoing series “Beautiful Boy,” Lissa Rivera photographs her domestic partner. 

The project began as a conversation on a subway between Rivera and her male friend who shared with her that he wore women’s clothing in college but after graduation, “struggled to navigate a world that seemed both newly accepting and yet inherently reviling of male displays of femininity.” Believing that photography could create a space to experiment, Rivera began photographing her friend and over time he became both her muse and romantic partner. 

The event goes from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
