CULTURE

Drama Queen

By  Audrey Gillespie 

June 18, 2021

Photographing queer youth, drag, and my own existential crisis with femininity my works create bold but ambient scenes, inviting the viewer to submerge into a world of emotion driven by a hazy aesthetic. Using lo-fi techniques to create an unpolished grungy form with 35mm format photography and 90’s camcorders, block colors glaze the moments where the celestial gloom of my subjects lurk. Mixed media, screenprint, and other forms of collage have taken shape within this photographic series as part of a side project of experimental works.
