About the art:
““Poem of a queer soul” is a series of photographs which are a reflection of my inner world. Although I have studied drawing and painting, my intention is to explore the surrealistic possibilities of photography, with an intense focus on the questions of sexual identity and gender, using myself as a tool of expression. I portray myself in my photographs and use my body as the muse of my artistic endeavour. I have used sensory perceptions and spiritual insights to draw attention to issues of social, political, cultural and sexual identity”.
