Portrait from Sophia Wallace’s series “On Beauty”.
According to the project description, Wallace “…was curious to see what the result would be if [she] photographed men using the unspoken rules that dictate the way women are conventionally posed in photographs and paintings.”

[Image description: photo of a light-skinned, short haired young man, taken from slightly above, showing his head and upper torso. He is wearing only a black, see-through sweater which merges against the black backdrop. He is gazing towards one side. He holds his arms against his body; one hand is placed on his stomach and the other on his neck, holding the sweater against his body, although part of his shoulders and chest are bared.]

My work will be auctioned in the Slideluck Fundraiser on December 8th.
Price of admission is nothing to sneeze at but here are all the reasons to spend it if you have it. If you can afford it, by all means purchase a VIP ticket and some work!
Slideluck Auction Fundraiser Why attend?
The Party For those who don’t know Slideluck, their parties are known to overflow with the some of the brightest stars in the industry. Sotheby’s will run the live auction which features almost 50 works. Bron Imaging is providing a mistletoe photobooth.
The Artists The list of artists who are donating work for this auction is truly phenomenal, a short list includes Elinor Carucci, Phillip Toledano, Jan Von Holleben, Vincent Laforet, Andrew Hetherington, Ruben Natal-San Miguel and more, auction preview here.
The Food Speaking to the foodies now, Slideluck is known for combining a serious passion for photography with a hard core appreciation of culinary delights. 7 underground supper clubs are serving locally sourced dinner and dessert. Wine will be poured by the Noble Rot and for the beer drinkers, know that Brooklyn Brewery is in full support. Now to the most important part.
The Cause. Youth Empowerment through Photography Proceeds from this event will go to the organization and their Youth Initiative which works nationally and globally to empower underprivileged kids through photography and multimedia storytelling. As a kid growing up in Seattle, I was personally transformed by youth empowerment programs. In college, I then discovered documentary film-making. From there, my whole life changed. I know firsthand how monumental it can be to gain access to these tools. In telling my own story, my world opened up. I have always been troubled by the elitist implications of the cost of being an image maker. I worry about the artists who will never get near a gallery or a magazine assignment simply because the financial barrier– without our intervention–is insurmountable. How amazing to have an opportunity to support an organization that disrupts this model. What stories will these young people tell us? What artists will emerge from their ranks?
Join the fun and purchase a ticket. VIP Cocktail Reception & Event: $250 Event: $125

Please view it at the CENTER site, tumblr shrinks the pictures. I was humbled to be included on the list of winners with so many incredible and important projects. Read the jurors statements for more on the competition.
Truer is an autobiographical series inspired by the common experience of falling in love. The work renders visible social expectations of romantic narratives–as heterosexual and gender conforming. Shot over a seven month period, the series is raw, intimate and frank in it’s approach. The centrality of female desire is a prominent theme within the work. In this way and others, Truer departs from conventional depictions of female bodies and sexuality in western art. Truer situates itself within a mostly unseen history of photography of lesbian and genderqueer subjects by lesbian and genderqueer photographers.
Truer Awarded on CENTER website
