The Queering of Photography
The Queering of Photography is a London based project exploring the complex relationship between queer identity and photographic representation. Rooted in studio portraiture, it simultaneously examines the measuring of identity and the parameters of a photograph. The pose and gaze of the sitter and the materiality of the photograph are put into question through a formal yet playful aesthetic.
The Queering of Photography has generated the photographic works Looking Out, Looking In; Turn; Figural, Figurative; Skin; and Frame and is still ongoing. It was originally produced for the practice-based PhD project The Queering of Photography: A Generative Encounter which was undertaken at the Royal College of Art 2014-2019.
