Artist Statement

I am presently focused on an ongoing photo-series documenting the drag performance community beginning in my home city of New Haven, CT. This body of work portrays my adventure into the heraldic power of a humanness characterized by gender and sexual identity iconoclasm and a remarkable representation of ethnic diversity, inclusiveness and shamanic/ritualistic reference. My intention with this documentation is to travel nationally and capture in photographs the cultural and social contributions of drag art performance and to engage a conversation about how this community, and the queer community at large, exclaims a people pioneering the evolution of social consciousness and exemplifies the evolution of humanity as a species.
