A Little Yellow


Digital Photograph Print

"A Little Yellow" is one of a series of photographs which investigate the process of identity construction as a strategy for achieving intimacy. The desire for connection spurns an effort to close the gap between what we consider to be our true selves and the self which is visible to others. The act of constructing an external representation of the self is a labor which is as mundane as it is epic. This labor of identity is a performance but not a façade: the effort itself is a vulnerable process. “A Little Yellow” showcases both the smallness and the greatness of our efforts towards intimacy; it is a piece about the heartbreaking amd often humorous labor of longing viewed through the lens of gender identity.
