“Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” at Kaycee Olson Gallery

Jeff Sheng, the Los Angeles based artist responsible for the provocative photo series “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”, will be exhibiting his work at the Kaycee Olson Gallery in Los Angeles.

Haunting and yet sad, the controversial series examines the U.S. military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy by showing gay servicemen and women posing in their uniforms with their identities concealed—their faces obscured by a faint shadow, their partner’s hand, or the slightest tilt of the neck.

The images certainly evoke an impenetrable sense of loneliness and confinement, forcing the viewer to grapple with the silence and invisibility that these men and women must feel when in uniform.

The exhibit runs until October 23, 2010.
