performers & queer spaces,
parties & trash babies,
portraits and shenanigans.
A project started in the summer of 2017 to take what I'd learned while tinkering with portraiture and gels and use it to capture some of the inspirational queer personas I'm lucky enough to rub shoulders with living and partying in East London. Many drag queens, mostly performers, all embodying and projecting "something else".
A simpler project with a wider mandate: Mirrors lie, so here's a second opinion, a different light. A kaleidoscope of faggy strobist portraits of friends, just coloured lights on skin.
