After years of taking pictures of celebrities such as Karen O. and Iggy Pop for publications including Rolling Stone, Vice, and Vogue, photographer Aliya Naumoff is letting us get in on all the fun. In her new show, Perceptions, Naumoff, who learned the ropes as an assistant to David LaChapelle, presents her images in an interactive multimedia experience “that allows the viewer to explore the distance between the intimate portrait and how it is perceived through the media.” Viewers are encouraged to touch the plastic oil-filled sticker on the image to reveal a portrait of one of her many famous subjects beneath the distorted layers. Which celebrity will you uncover?
Wed., Aug. 7, 7 p.m.; Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m. Starts: Aug. 7. Continues through Sept. 11, 2013
