Elias Wessel's 'There Must Be More To Life' series will be displayed at New York's The Art Directors Club Gallery come September 20th. The German born artist is known for his fashion photography expertise, brought to the public via his relations with Betsey Johnson, Lydia Herst and Camilla Alves.

This breakthrough exhibit reveals yet another dimension to the world of Wessel. The images revolve around the legend that is Amanda Lepore, a figurehead amid the transgender community. The placement of Lepore next to half-eaten snacks and a nude man draws attention to Wessel's unusual manner of operation.

While Lepore is captured in the most curious of sets in There Must Be More To Life, little needs to be done to attract a crowd to her productions. Her cult-like following is supportive in every sense of the word, and the success of the event is as such assured.
