Towards Tenderness is a new collaboration between Sunny Leerasanthanah and David Lurvey. It began with this group of photographs, text, and objects put together over two months at the end of the summer of 2017 and exhibited at Lubov Gallery in New York. This exhibit will serve as a jumping off point to an extended encounter with the experience of tenderness. This space offered the collaboration an opportunity to serve as a reminder that everyone shares a fundamental need for moments of closeness and care.
