After one year of photography and three years of wandering, pieces of this hermit work are now beginning to surface.
The images were shot over one year, 2010/11, as a collection of queer artists and performers coalesced in the dark–contributing to the cultural explosion we are living through now. Relying on the moon and the disco ball for light, the images are grainy and seductive, dreamy and tender. B&W prints were subsequently hand-painted, hand-sewn, and are presented in hand-made frames.
