“Queer Straight Photographs”
2016-2018

“What does transparency keep obscure?”
-Judith Butler, in the 1999 preface to “Gender Trouble” (1990)

“Queer Straight Photographs” interrogates straight photography’s privileged position as a presumably normative, ubiquitous, and transparent medium, especially when it attempts to represent subjects that attempt to evade normalization: that is, subjects that can be identified as “queer”.
