This work is very personal to me. Through singular portraits, it reflects the journey of the coming out process that nearly all LGBTQ+ individuals face when coming to terms with who they are. Beginning with denial, and feeling wrong within society, to slowly coming to terms with ourselves, to starting to accept and recognize we’re not alone, to finally feeling a sense of pride and ownership of who we are. This is the journey we face. A shared experience many don’t know we’ve had. The world outside of us doesn’t see what we’ve been through in order to accept ourselves. We want society to change its perspective. We want you to see us.
I am so happy to share this piece. See Us is currently being exhibited at the Southern Utah Museum of Arts in Cedar City, UT now until May 1, 2021. This project has definitely pushed my creative comfort zone and I couldn’t be more pleased with the end result.
See Us is also available for purchase. Contact me for details.
