What the Forest Bathing: Queer Portraits in Nature series is about.
This series documents queer people exploring and being rejuvenated by forest bathing in nature. The collaboration with queer subjects across the spectrum of LGBTQIA+ includes video interviews and still photographs to share that sense of calm with our community. The goal is to capture a human centered portrait in nature and bring back that green natural environment to the gallery space.
There is an open call to be photographed for this ongoing project. Link to participate.
