Olympia, Wa, 2001-2004
This gallery represents the first few years of No Fauxxx work and documenting the queer underground’s outward sexuality, as well as some snapshots from my own environment in Olympia and San Francisco. How I started taking erotic photography is kind of an old story that I’ve told a million times and I’m not sure how else I can say it. I’ve always collaborated with my friends on these images, and then extended that to muses and models around the world and it just kind of became my thing. I’ll try to replace this exact paragraph with something more precise later, but at this time… it’s just what I do. It’s my foundation my armour and my everyday outfit.
Drops Case is a short video performance of two Google searches on the same topic before and after the 2016 election.
my collection of explicit portraits of queer and trans individuals comes from over 15 years of sharing private and semi-public spaces with amazing people. because money, careers, and intentions were on hand i would hate to call this an “accurate representation of the queer community” but perhaps it offers up something a little more exciting. My work is a way of bringing fantasy into the images we hold of our queer worlds, wherever we may be. thankful to the models who bring themselves to this work and contribute to creating visibility for their audiences.
