At the Bend in the Bright River is a collection of portraits that celebrate the beauty and stillness of quiet moments of intimacy between me and members of my queer family. Heavily influenced by film, literature, and queer temporality theories, the portraits explore the passage of time in intimate relationships by combining elements of photographic and drawn information. By combining elements of drawing and photography within a body of lithographic prints I aim to complicate, prolong, and elaborate on the act of reproducing the likeness of another person. The portraits of At the Bend in the Bright River are bolstered by a series of smaller contextual images that bridge and complicate the relationship between each of the sitters.
