The Men of Tom House by Homo Riot

The Men of Tom House by Homo Riot

"There's a house in Echo Park where a group of men live, work and create in the shadow of one of the most important gay artists in history. Last year, I was asked by the Tom of Finland Foundation to create a mural to live alongside the house and the art of Tom of Finland. To mark the one year anniversary of the mural, I went back to the house to document the wall and to shoot some of the men that I associate with the house. 
I'm proud to share those images with you in this book."

The Men of Tom House is a collection of images taken by the artist Homo Riot to commemorate the one year anniversary of his mural installation at Tom House. These images document the mural and include intimate portraits of the men that the artist associates with the house. The publication is a very limited run and each copy is signed by the artist.
