The story of A, B, C, D, E, F
This is a subjective account using photography in an experimental mode. It is an investigation on the transformative possibilities of photography in creating visual metaphors.
Taking inspiration from various approaches of image-making, from advertising to personal, I have created this series based on the implications of sexuality in shaping an individual and the assimilation of social references regarding homosexuality.
Many of these images are made of things I posses and which are occasionally displayed in my own house. From a letter a friend posted on Facebook, which his mother sent him two decades ago, to a daguerreotype of two men together and a family photo of my partner Darrin dressed up as a superhero when he was 5 years old, these pictures are displayed in the context of sexual orientation and the psychological complexities inherent to the construction of one’s cultural identity.
