Join Gogy for the NYC release of PROTECT ME FROM MYSELF , published by Richardson Magazine.
BOOK RELEASE, PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION + FILM SCREENING
WEDNESDAY MARCH 23RD, 2016
PROTECT ME FROM MYSELF,
both a book + short film,
is Gogy’s honest, un-staged documentary.
All iPhone photo + video, roaming, looking for every hint of purity.
“How dark + lost we all are, how cold reality is.
How we try to hide our ugliness
with vanity, and how the ugliness bears more truth.
I hold on to the light, romance, fantasies + obsessions,
and don’t want to let them go.
I want to seduce you the same way the streets or darkness
do to me. But in the same breath, highlight our hypocrisy, our contradictions;
face them, dissect whats wrong with them, with us.
When I say us, I mean everyone,
but you’ll feel the context + references to
Latino/inner-city culture, and you’ll see that the entire book
has a distinctively New York, east coast feel as well.
My fears, my conflicts and veils are all faced here.”
