It's a very personal exhibit in which Atom's photos tell a story of his friendship with a well known and beloved member of the body modification community, Adam Aries, and honors Adam's life, which was cut too short in 2011. Here's more info on the show from Sacred:

Atom Moore began photographing Adam Aries, also known as Zid, a decade ago. Zid was in many ways larger than life. His interests were not mainstream and he challenged many social norms. His gritty but beautiful look matched his straightforward attitude toward the world. Zid embodied the definition of living life the way you see fit.

Zid passed away unexpectedly in his sleep on March 22nd, 2011. In the wake of this tragedy, Atom has compiled a body of work from throughout their years making photographs together.

While Zid is no longer alive, his vivid spirit remains, both in these photographs and in the hearts and minds of the people who knew him. His unusual life touched many people, including his loving parents, who chose to remember him by getting a replica of his iconic locust tattoo. Atom is proud to share the unique and beautiful spirit of Zid through his photographs.
Exhibition runs from July 7th - 31st. Hope to see you there and celebrate a life fully lived.
