David Lebe created this image by using a penlight to trace the features of a man and the bedroom in which he sits. Lebe describes his penlight photographs of male figures as representations of “the sexual electricity that we can feel along our skin when in proximity with someone we are attracted to.” The photograph is on view in “In Dialogue: Wolfgang Tillmans” http://ow.ly/AS31K
