Virginia Woolf fans whose travels take them to New York City in the next few weeks may be interested to know about a certain new photo exhibit.

Actress Tilda Swinton has guest curated — that is, she invited eleven contemporary photographers to contribute to — an exhibition inspired by Woolf’s novel Orlando at Aperture Gallery.

(For those unfamiliar with Orlando but curious about the show: It’s a “fantastical biography of a poet who first appears as a sixteen-year-old boy at the court of Elizabeth I, and is left at the novel’s end a married woman in the year 1928.”)

The exhibit runs through July 11, and you can preview some of the artwork on the website Hyperallergic.
