Artist Statement:

In color theory, a drop of black paint might be regarded as a means to “ruin” any shade it is added to. Devoid of connotation, though, with a profound ability to affect their surroundings, the queer individual can never be stripped of this dynamism, even reclaiming the once-derogatory term as a means of empowerment. Although the subjects fit easily within the frame, their essence cannot be contained within a box. Captured on 35mm in a candid manner, the subject and artist share a moment in space and time, free of staging; illustrating a clear depiction of authenticity, granting the viewer an invitation of voyeurism to an environment defined by it’s inclusivity.
