Inspired by film and femininity, my work explores character, narrative, and identity. Investigating self-portraiture, I ask viewers to consider their own responses to queerness as they see it. By utilizing my own identity and queer experience, I hope to engage the viewer in an unfamiliar set of circumstances.
The photos ask: Can we live comfortably outside the norm? How do these characters challenge societal ideas of masculinity?
Driven by emotion and intuition, I produce a melodrama that reflects ideas of visibility, and invisibility, what is acknowledged and what is not, questions that remain relevant in today’s politics.
