ANNOUNCEMENT! World Wide Art LA is going to be an international art exhibit at the Los Angeles Convention Center from October 16th-19th. They have named me the “host” of the social equality pavilion and will feature my work. Look out for billboards featuring my work all over L.A. later this year!

A quote I found about my work from LiveMint and The Wall Street Journal
"The visual history of same-sex love has been usually subsumed by the need to either eroticize the subject (think of the photographs of Robert Mapplethorpe) or the impulse to capture them in the thick of the rituals of matrimony. The latter has gained prominence in the public domain with nations and states becoming increasingly open to civil unions for same-sex couples. There are exceptions, of course, but not too many. Recently, I discovered the work of Braden Summers, an American photographer whose project, All Love is Equal, records the ordinary lives of same-sex couples in different societies in the West and East. In these candid shots, we see men and women walking with their partners, expressing affection for each other in public, or simply hanging out, as any other couple would do, at home, on the streets, or in cafés. It is the utterly unremarkable quality of their being together that becomes the most poignant aspect of these compositions." - Somak Ghoshal
I donated some photos to a local Bay Area GSA (high school Gay Straight Alliance), and they thanked me by recreating the photos! I love it.
