Beautiful Pictures > Views from the Hinterlands

An ongoing body of photographic works documenting my continued exploration of my identity as a gender non-conforming person living in a rural, conservative community, these photographs are a sort of diary of a language with which I still struggle to express. Shot with a large format film camera (4x5) both on site in my community and in studio settings these photographs explore the performative nature of self-presentation. This performance, although always present, is magnified in the lived experiences of queer individuals, like myself. Influenced in part by the writings of queer theorist José Esteban Muñoz, this body of work is a sort of documentary record of the guerrilla theatre that for people like me is our lives.
