What is a fashion subculture? What separates it from a trend or a fad?
"Subcultures are created out of community — trends have always been more for profit."
What sparked your interest in this facet of the queer community?
"It’s not a subculture for me. These people in my work are just my friends [and] people I admire."
What is radical queerness?
"I can’t answer this alone. Look at the work of Leah James, Mars Hobrecker, Peter Cramer, Go Go Graham, Juliana Huxtable, Jack Waters, Serena Jara, Josef Astor. [There are] so many people creating great work."
In a word, how would you describe your relationship to the movement?
How did this photo series develop? What did you want to capture?
"I was shooting this series for i-D magazine. Rory Satran and I talked about something we both wanted to do. She did an amazing job interviewing everyone and giving the photos a voice. I just got to shoot people I admire all day, which was great!"
