While living in Provincetown, what started out as a casual hobby photographing the talent that came through town quickly became a serious study of queer life and culture in a place where queer was the status quo. There is an energy unique to queer life that I feel a pressing need to document, but I wanted to give context to this life outside of the clubs and the bars of Provincetown. That same energy brought me to Bushwick. Here, there is a queer community and culture that is thriving, and unique to the moment; it is my goal to represent, record, enrich, and expand our community.
