Since college, I have continually been interested in how we choose to identify ourselves and what aspects of ourselves we hold as the most important aspects of who we are. I’ve done work around non-obvious connections between people and how we can build connections with seemingly completely different people, as well as work focused on challenging stereotypes in the past. Most of this work has been from my personal perspective and, as I have been doing more editorial and storytelling work, has felt increasingly limited and shortsighted. With this project, I really want to push the experiences and perspectives of others to the forefront.
The basic premise _subVERSION is to highlight folks that subvert societal/cultural expectations with their personal identity. My hope is to feature at least 40 different people through a combination of lifestyle/fashion editorial photos featuring each person’s personal style along with their answers to introspective and explorative questions about their identities. I plan to collect these accounts in a book, or possibly a series of zines, as well as doing highlights here on my blog and on social media.
