The Story of A, B, C, D, E, F

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 possess and which are occasionally displayed in my own house. From a personal 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 husband dressed up as a superhero when he was 5 years old, these pictures are compiled in the context of sexual orientation and the psychological complexities inherent to the construction of one’s cultural identity.
