Linnea Lenkus, fine art photographer and curator at Linus Galleries, photographs artists in order to give viewers a well-rounded understanding of their artwork’s message. Specializing in creating fine art photography for people throughout all stages of their lives, Linnea’s dedication is embedded in every portrait she captures. Her two portrait photography studios are located in Pasadena and Long Beach.
Rollence Patugan was one of the artists photographed by Linnea and a participant in the art exhibit “It’s Only Natural”. His artworks woMEN – Ben, woMEN – Corporal V, and woMEN – John, question the definition of masculinity and call attention to gender barriers. Patugan’s intriguing black and white photographs strive to redefine the traditional gender roles.

“I left the corporate world or shall I say it left me in 2001. I decided to pursue my dream of becoming an actor while I freelanced as a website designer. At some point during this journey, I stepped behind the lens bringing my knowledge and experience with theatre. Ever since then, I have been in the pursuit of capturing through the lens, those fleeting moments with people. I hail from the Los Angeles neighborhood of EchoPark.
Getting my portrait taken by Linnea was a pleasure and honor. I also had a great experience at the “It’s Only Natural” opening. I was humbled to be a part of such a great collection of work and I look forward to exhibiting more of my work at the Linus Gallery.”
“Love art in yourself and not yourself in art.” – Konstantin Stanislavski
