“What does transparency keep obscure?”
-Judith Butler, in the 1999 preface to “Gender Trouble” (1990)

This project examines straight photography and its privileged position as a presumably normative and transparent medium.
The work wonders: what could happen when a seemingly matter-of-fact methodology of image-making attempts to represent subjects that actively try to evade being seen in normative terms?
Above all, what might a queer straight photograph look like?
