🎼 Hold You feat. Angel Deradorian // Rostam
TWO MALE DANCERS
35mm inkjet print

last year, i shot a series of images as an homage to the work of the late queer icon, Robert Mapplethorpe, reimagining his photos with two modern icons, Parker Kit Hill (@parkerkithill) and James Whiteside (@jamesbwhiteside).

words fail me in sharing this intoxicating news and conveying my deep gratitude for every being that’s been a part of this journey thus far. each and every individual that lends themselves to craft can attest to the ease in which we can find ourselves in slumps, contemplating if what we do has truly any affect on anything; feeling like our time and work are thanklessly spent trying to create only to land on feeling unnecessary, worthless, disgraceful even; tempted to shift focus to fields deemed lucrative by society’s machine. but what is it that we do to educate ourselves on history? where do we turn to find relics of the past? it’s not in banks, or under the monstrous capitalistic umbrella of the exchange of goods. no, it is in the places that showcase and preserve art. it’s our responsibility to represent our society, whether by advocating for those swept to it’s margins, or solely adding to the juices of the stew of our times, discussing and digesting our experiences as the ingredients we refer to. stella adler writes “life beats you down and crushes the soul, and art reminds you that you have one” a quote i often refer to when blessed with collaborating with each and every one of you, charging the life source with love and joy. thank you all, notably Nicole Wittenberg (@nwitts), the Alex Katz Foundation, and MFA Boston (@mfaboston

🎼 Every Night // Perfume Genius
LOLLIPOP & CORONA
35mm inkjet prints

BLACK PAINT
Inspired by a popular idea in color theory in which a drop of black paint has the capacity to "ruin" any shade, the queer individual parallels this profound ability to affect, further, enliven their surroundings, even reclaiming the once derogatory term as means of empowerment. Although the subjects fit easily within the frame, the essence of the community cannot be contained. Captured candidly on 35mm, the subject and artist share a moment in space and time, inviting the viewer to voyeuristically experience an environment defined by inclusivity.

🎼 Feel Your Weight // Rhye
BRAD
35mm inkjet print (censored)

after excitedly sharing this image yesterday, i woke up to find it reported and deleted; a clear reminder why it is so important to me to photograph the nude form. why is it we’ve stigmatized the human form so assiduously? although it was already censored, it seems the insinuation of nudity was enough to “offend”. geniuinely curious why anyone would follow someone when their work so greatly offends the viewer? a sort of rebuttal exists in this type of bare it all attitude, but it does make you wonder, on a platform rife with extremely distasteful sexualized imagery (exhibits a-z i can spot), this is something that gets deleted, as well as countless other images i’ve posted on here, careful to censor to abide by instagram’s (double) standards.

anyway, i’m happy to share this intoxicating news once again, and convey my deep gratitude for every being that’s been a part of this journey thus far. each and every individual that lends themselves to craft can attest to the ease in which we can find ourselves in slumps, contemplating if what we do has truly any affect on anything; feeling like our time and work are thanklessly spent trying to create only to land on feeling unnecessary, worthless, disgraceful even; tempted to shift focus to fields deemed lucrative by society’s machine. but what is it that we do to educate ourselves on history? where do we turn to find relics of the past? it’s not in banks, or under the monstrous capitalistic umbrella of the exchange of goods. no, it is in the places that showcase and preserve art. it’s our responsibility to represent our society, whether by advocating for those swept to it’s margins, or solely adding to the juices of the stew of our times, discussing and digesting our experiences as the ingredients we refer to. stella adler writes “life beats you down and crushes the soul, and art reminds you that you have one” a quote i often refer to when blessed with collaborating with each and every one of you, charging the life source with love and joy. thank you all, notably Nicole Wittenberg (@nwitts), the Alex Katz Foundation, and MFA Boston (@mfaboston).
