Closet Cases: queers on What We Wear
Submissions closed on July 15, 2019.
"We shape our identity as LGBTIQ people by what we put on our bodies. We signal to each other with our clothes in silent community on the street. Jean jackets can be armor. Bracelets can be spiritual totems. A belt can save your life, or take it. So this is not merely a "fashion book." It's a collection of artifacts that testify to the power of fashion as a verb, to the complex and lovely strategies that govern what we do in the LGBTIQ community to build authentic selves that are both comfortable and seen."
Renaming the American Landscape
Renaming the American Landscape is a series of photographs documenting natural phenomena and human interactions in United States nature reserves. The images provide rare witnesses to a mass geese migration at Loess Bluffs National Wildlife Preserve in northwest Missouri—up to one million birds take part at its peak. However, Loess Bluffs was, until recently, named Squaw Creek, an example of how derogatory language was once routinely woven into the American landscape.
