24th Birthday ft. Holly Stevens
concept: colorful, absurd, and serious
The makeup had to be as absurd as the prop setup. So naturally, my face is painted to be a clown.
This is the first time I've modeled nude. I'm afraid of sharing my body.
As a trans person, exploring sexuality is difficult since a lot of physical intimacy makes me deeply insecure. Addressing my internalized shame around my body and sexuality was liberating.
Holly's work inspired me to celebrate my identity as a queer, trans, person-of-color.
I deserve to be celebrated and I deserve to feel handsome!
Holly is an incredible portrait photographer. She captures nudes, boudoir, kink, and queer love.
