Maxine Henryson on I-DEA, The Goddess by Hunter Reynolds
For over 25 years, Hunter Reynolds explored issues of gender, sexuality, HIV/AIDS, politics, mortality, and rebirth through performance, photography, installations, and his alter ego, Patina du Prey. Reynolds collaborated extensively with photographer and bookmaker Maxine Henryson, who documented Reynods' guerrilla-like street performances and interventions in Berlin, Antwerp, Los Angeles, New York. These collaborations are now documented in a new artist book I-DEA, The Goddess Within, available through the A.R.T. Library Program. Here Henryson shares her reflections on Reynolds, as Patina, in the process of their collaborations.
