Got a Girl Crush On: The Photography of Jackie Lee Young

I had the pleasure of showing my work this past weekend in New Orleans along side the talented Jackie Lee Young as a part of the Elemental Collaborations project (curated by the equally talented Aubrey Edwards). The series Jackie created for this project is too gorgeous not to share:

I wanted to move forward with creating a mythological being as my subject. I chose a friend who is making a slow change from female to male, and I wanted to keep all skin/gender in the dark, therefore asking him to create a costume. What we made was what we called the Black Water Suit. A muscle suit of sorts that doesn’t reflect of deflect a gender. I wanted to also use water that was unusual, not common in nature, black water! Mythological waterWater that can only be made with spray paint and reflection.”
