The Rose Project is a deeply personal portrait project dedicated to the beautiful trans, gay, queer and non-binary community. It began after a friend and collaborator of mine, Cash Askew, passed away. She and I created a lot of wonderful images together, and I felt compelled to continue photographing people in her community.
It's called The Rose Project because I often use flowers in my work, and some of my most favorite images of Cash feature her holding roses. The idea is that I am photographing people from the trans community who want to be seen. I’ve had people contact me from all over the world, and I would like to be able to meet and photograph them all.
The Rose Project was recently featured in The Bold Italic.
Special thanks to the all people who have already supported this project with their time and talents.
