Abramov Lex IS ‘UNCOVERED’
Abramov Lex bares all in "Uncovered," his coming of age story about a man who isn’t afraid to speak his truth, follow through with his vision and be exposed, both body and soul. The four part series of art books tells the story of Alexander Abramov. The Russian artist and producer portrays different characters in unique worlds full of action and emotion. Through images and notes from his personal diary, Alexander explains to the world who he really is.
"I started keeping journals 18 years ago. My diary is about awareness of my homosexuality, about my experiences and explorations of the world: first feelings, first love, first sexual encounter... It is also about human imperfection and struggle, drugs and fears, scars and past troubles. On the whole, it tells of becoming the man I have wanted to be: a man who is able to inspire others to makes changes for the better."
Alexander developed the idea for “Uncovered” three years ago when he first moved to New York City from Moscow. He had three motivations: the first was his love and passion for photography. Second was his desire to share stories from his life that he thought a lot of people, especially the LGBTQ community, might identify with and would find interesting and inspiring. Lastly, he wanted to create; something he has loved to do his entire life. "I’m a man who is not afraid to open his soul," he says.
"Аfter all, I always remember, life only gets better when we are able to be honest and when we are willing to give something to others, especially our spirits.”
