Non-Binary Portrait series part 2.5

This is the third instalment of a series of portraits I’ve been working on for the last couple of years of my non-binary friends. You can read more about it on the previous instalments here: 1 & 2.  As someone who identifies as non-binary myself it’s a project that’s been really close to my heart, and one that keeps evolving with me. This instalment is a bit less structured and takes the shape of a diary, documenting both new friends and some of the closest people in my life as their favourite selves.

These images were published in The Photographic Journal yesterday, you can check that out here

It is what it is

My friend Starchild Stela & I had the pleasure of being invited to do an installation at Xpace for the month of January/February, which will be up until February 10 ~ For this project, we combined both of our non-binary portraits series and we wanted to present these works in a cozy/intimate atmosphere. I think this is probably the biggest project I ever worked on, basically a year’s worth of work in one room. 


Here’s some images of the installation, and here is an essay that was commissioned by xpace about the show // more info here!! www.xpace.info/exhibition-event/laurence-philomene-starchild-stela-it-is-what-it-is/
