Photography from a queer perspective forms the stock of a new photographic agency and library called Gaze. The venture seeks to represent ‘our multi-sexual, multi-racial, multi-class community’, according to a spokeswoman. Based in west London, Gaze seeks to broaden the range of images available to the media to ‘allow an informed and non-stereotyped view’. Photographers whose work is to be included in the stock library include Della Grace, Lola Flash, Sarah Booker and C. Moore Hardy, whose work is pictured here. The Gaze spokeswoman says ‘collaborators’ are gathering images in Mykonos, Lesbos, Nepal, Thailand and Malaysia to bolster the library’s content. Gaze is holding a launch exhibition at the London Lighthouse, London W11, from 7 to 20 February.
