JJ Levine, Elisha 2012, from the series Queer Portraits

Queer Portraits is a series of colour photographs that capture the relationships Levine has with their community of friends, lovers, and siblings. The portraits are shot in domestic settings and are characterized by saturated colours and discursive backgrounds. Levine’s own identity informs their approach to gender, sexuality, and queer space; and the resulting project expresses fierceness, beauty, and resistance through the confrontational gaze of the subjects and the aesthetic of their queer culture.
