Project info

Jordan McAfee has been collaborating with performance artist, Shane, since 2009. Their first successful image involved a rubber chicken. That cemented their friendship. The two often work late into the night looking for rooftops, abandoned buildings, and biker bars in which to work. Jordan and Shane enjoy each other immensely and with the use of masks and props make hilarious images like Shane in an office making a xerox of his naked buttocks. Although the pictures are in color they feel old-fashioned and bring to mind the movies of Charlie Chaplin. The photographs explore loneliness, gender, identity, the fluidity of transformation and the tragedy of the human condition.
