A photographer specializing in black and white portraits, I explore queer identity and expression to create a space where individuals feel seen and celebrated without judgement. As a queer artist, I understand the importance of representation and visibility. Through queer identities, I explore the nuanced layers of intimacy, desire, and self-expression. I seek to capture the complexity and beauty of queer sexuality and experiences, from the euphoria of newfound love to the struggles of self-discovery. Through my work, I celebrate the diverse spectrum of human identity, and create images that empower others to embrace who they are.
