Master Michael is a 47 year leatherman. Slave angie is a (mumble,mumble) year old leatherwoman. They’ve been together for almost 11 years in a Master/slave relationship. Both are active in the leather/kink community of Chicago and the M/s community around the world. Michael is a co-founder of the Chicago Leathermen’s Group, a discussion group for leather and leather-curious men. He’s a community member of the Chicago Hellfire Club’s McAdory Committee. Michael is a co-director of MAsT: Greater Chicago (Master And slave Together). Slave angie is a member of MAsT: Greater Chicago. She is a former Board Director for the LRA Chicago, a pansexual dungeon social club. Angie volunteers as a bootblack at many local events.
Our connection is through our involvement with our leather club - Chicago Leather Club, our involvement in the leather and Master/slave community both locally and across the world as presenters, learners and listeners. Together, we are honored to hold the titles of International Master/slave 2014, Great Lakes Master/slave 2013 and Illinois Master/slave 2013.
The exhibit will feature over 40 prints of Leatherwomen and Leathermen photographed over the last 32 months by C. Creane. This dedicated historian has been documenting women (and men) throughout the Leather Community. One-at-a time, falling in love with each participant's personal story. Now for the first time-she gets to share with the public her work and our readers are invited!
