Homosexual, North Dakota
Homosexual, North Dakota documents the isolation inherent in being a gay man in a conservative, Midwestern state. These photographs hint at a feeling of loneliness and being an outsider through imagery of barren landscapes, unkempt spaces, and open scenery. This work offers brief moments of reprieve where beauty and love might be recognized but these instances often exist hidden in a much bleaker context. Homosexual, North Dakota is a poetic metaphor for the denial of the human condition and the love that persists by members of the LGBTQIA community.
