These photographs present me in public viewed by strangers. By capturing these quick glances, I am collaborating with a stranger, capturing their true initial reaction to my presence and potentially showing a glimpse of the collective mindset of the community leaking through an individual . Since I don't know what these people are thinking, I allow the viewer to interpret the glances for themselves. Identifying as gender queer, my photos are a way for me to place the audience in my shoes. As I continue to reflect on the strangers a sense of empathy grows within me, which I hope resonates with the viewer as well. (2017-2018)
