IN A NUTSHELL
Embodiment: A Portrait of Queer Life in America, is a long term multi-media project that explores what it means to be queer in America today though photographic portraits, written statements and short video.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"I see these people in the photographs and they are beautiful. They are not beautiful because they emulate cisgender ideals, nor are they beautiful because they are flaunting some sort of anti-establishment agenda, but because they themselves are beautiful." - The Eccentric Tomboy
"Thank you so much for doing this project as well as allowing me to become a part of it. You guys came into my life during a chapter of my metamorphosis where I felt that I had no chance at life and I have found an immense source of inspiration from you all's presence.” -Jesus, 18, TX.
“Indeed, in a straight world in which queer lives and bodies that live them are rarely noted for anything other than how they deviate, Embodiment: A Portrait of Queer Life in America enters into the gallery at an opportune moment in American history, a history that, as Landreth makes clear, must stretch to accommodate the heterogeneous population that forms it.” – Erin Silver, Ciel Variable No. 81
