Bruce LaBruce collaborated with Damien Blottiere in 2016, giving Blottiere access to his archive. From these images, in his signature style, Blottiere collaged the photographs to create these works. A limited edition of the collaborative collages are available through at Tom of Finland Store, in conjunction with the Bruce LaBruce: FAGGOTRY exhibition.
Damien Blottière (b. 1977, France) studied Fashion at Duperré art school in Paris. Always interested in images and photography, he worked first as fashion editor for magazines: Mixt(e), Purple Fashion and Dazed & Confused, until he decided to devote himself to his photography and collage work. Blottière gathers images and composes by hand organically shaped collages with a surrealist language that function as an open window into a world of fantasy. He has collaborated closely with Bernhard Willhelm and has also worked for brands that include Pierre Hardy, Louis Vuitton and Carven, as well as a long list of high profile international periodicals.

For over a quarter-century the auteur/provocateur known as Bruce LaBruce has been disrupting, dissecting, and disrobing in the name of cinema. Blasted into the demimonde of underground punk moviemaking with his feature debut, No Skin Off My Ass, LaBruce quickly established that, while he was certainly game for exploring the messy, sticky zones of fringe film, he was actually the unholy product of arthouse auteurism. From Robert Altman to Federico Fellini and Werner Herzog, LaBruce mines the sacred texts of the canon and inserts his own revolutionary gay-sex-positive narratives. Layered with scathing wit and a fundamental rejection of capitalist control over the mind and body, his films and photographs take to task the mainstream porn industry as well as Hollywood. In this spirit, he has collaborated with actors—like Slava Mogutin, Tony Ward, and Francois Sagat—who swing between art and commerce, fashion and filth, the avant-garde and the boulevard. Bruce LaBruce’s particular brand of regal queer fecundity has spawned a generation of feral filmmakers (and ravenous audiences).
