Breaking the Binary: Queerness and the Image

This print viewing introduces students to a range of images that focus on the spectrum of identities within the umbrella of LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer).

The images focus on topics of youth, aging, identity, performance, and the notion of living an authentic life. The selection of works encourage students to discuss perceptions on identity and how photography can either represent or misrepresent that identity, while also navigating the artists’ choices in color, composition, point of view, and staging techniques.
