“ALL LOVE IS EQUAL is a Kickstarter-funded project that depicts same-sex couples in various countries. I traveled the world for 6 weeks creating the work in the UK, France, India, Lebanon, Brazil and the U.S.
When thinking of iconic romance, ask yourself if any imagery (paintings, photographs, film-stills) comes to mind that is not showing heterosexual couples? Probably not. I would like to use this work as a platform to discuss why that is and how to change it.
A large driving force behind creating this series was actually less about affecting the gay community directly, and more about giving the general population a way to relate to gay imagery which is devoid of sex, victimization, or banality – themes that might usually prevent some folks from connecting. The photographs are not documentations, they are dreamy illustrations of what open expressions of love in different cultures *could* look like in a future, more accepting time.”
