Dean Hutton is a genderqueer photojournalist and artist who has no interest in educating you about post-binary gender identity because you can google that shit on your own. She is a photojournalist, an artist and a performer who currently works mostly with digital media made on an iPhone. The artist has a fine collection of muses he spends too much time juggling to be too serious about life, art or politics. The photojournalist is obsessed with finding novel ways of telling the social story.
Much of his work is concerned with social issues. She was chief photographer at the Mail & Guardian and has won several awards during 14 years as a photojournalist. He is a Ruth First fellow, and was recently awarded an international artists’ residency by the Africa Centre.
"I do not love JOBURG. I crave it. I am obsessed with JOBURG. I treat its streets and its people much like a stalker would. I am a menace. JOBURG is not just home, she is a muse."
