King Kong Issue 16 / Omar Apollo


Out of stock



Grammy award nominee singer Omar Apollo is a great example of the cultural blender which is the USA – he was born to Mexican parents, and grew up in Indiana. His musical heritage has many roots and his appeal global. Our photoshoot references the strength of Tom of Finland, the complexity of Fassbinder, both expertly blended in the United States. A mix of hot cool and longing filtered and enhanced by the artist’s lens. After all leather is a second skin, a protection, communicating both keep your distance and come hither. We’re all voyeurs, watching him change outfits – material masculinity in every sensual and consensual sense. Gay iconography repurposed for the modern male gaze.
