Tom of Finland Untitled (Gavin) Notebook
For your inspirations, this notebook or sketchbook designed by Fotografiska features Tom of Finland's iconic photograph of Gavin holding his crotch on the cover.
This item was produced in collaboration with Tom of Finland Foundation to complement The Darkroom, an exciting study in artist Tom of Finland’s life and work process. The exhibition consists of photographic portraits which served as reference images for his famed homoerotic drawings. These photographs were confined to Tom of Finland’s home studio and darkroom, displaying them elsewhere would have risked a prison sentence, as homosexuality was criminalized and classified as a mental disorder in his native Finland at the time of this work. Even after a century of Tom of Finland’s birth, there are forces today trying to relegate homosexual desire into dark closets. And photography, by nature, seeks light.
