Digital sketch: Gonzalo Orquin, "Si, quiero"
Rome-based artist Gonzalo Orquin photographed same-sex couples kissing in baroque Italian churches for "Si, quiero" (translation: "I do"), which was scheduled to go on view in a private gallery in his home city until the Vatican put a stop to it, citing Italian laws which "safeguard an individual's religious feelings." Fortunately, there are no such rules in New York, so you can check out the large-scale images on view 24 hours in Leslie-Lohman's windows.
