Julio Mitchel: Do You Love Me?
Born and raised in Cuba, Julio Mitchel moved to New York City at the age of 17 and it has remained his home ever since. Do You Love Me? is Mitchel’s lifelong project, which began in the 1960s and will continue, as Mitchel himself proclaims, “until the day I die.” Strong in gesture, Mitchel’s images document the act of searching or touching, reaching out, grasping, and embracing one another.
Nan Richardson, editor with Umbrage Editions writes: “Mitchel holds a mirror to our deepest desires and our collective loss. He opens us to uneasy personal scrutiny, asking, in the very title, the one naked, all-important question, ‘do you love me?,’ knowing, in a grave and confrontational way, that there will be many answers—each insufficient.”
