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 LGBTQ 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.
Special thanks to the all people who have already supported this project with their time and talents.
