Artist Statement

 

I create queer disruption.

 

I see photography through the knowledge of queer theory, and I use its influence to destabilize photography, speak to counter-culture publics, and investigate the aspects of photography that function as a tool of oppression. I layer, hide, and contrast traditional forms of photographic imagery within conceptual or visual modes of infiltration. These subversive tactics reflect a queer praxis used to survive and counter an established and normalized world. Similar to queer worldmaking, my photographs dismantle the conventional narrative by revealing the limitations of normativity.
