Rachel’s Team Pick:
Those of you playing along from home may remember Molly Landreth from when we interviewed her about Embodiment: A Portrait of Queer Life in America this time last year. She was working with Amelia Tovey and a large-format camera to document the lives of queer people of all spots and stripes all across the country, and she was creating a one-of-a-kind documentary as she went. It was an amazing project, and a really significant experience for those involved in it.
Being a part of Embodiment, portrayed as a valid and important part of national queer culture and community, makes me feel less isolated. Even within queer community, genders and identities can be narrowing and limiting, but with Embodiment, each person is seen as an individual, and each expression is inspiring.
— Hanna King, Embodiment participant
Now everyone can benefit from Molly’s work, as her prints of queer people and couples are available for sale on Etsy! This is great news because they are seriously fucking gorgeous and perfect. Make sure to check it out!
The pictures are amazing.
love her work. just discovere.d
Everyone seems to be a photographer right now… After being bombarded by artsy images everywhere it’s difficult for me to be surprised or moved. I have to say her work intrigues me, I love it, she managed to make her art stand out from all the rest. Props to her.
I agree… her work really stands out. I particularly love this shot: http://ny-image3.etsy.com/il_fullxfull.169446851.jpg. I would love to have that on my wall.
Love the images. Wish I could afford one right now. This is my fave: http://www.etsy.com/listing/43023961/jo-and-joann-seattle-wa-2007
But damn you, AS… a link to Etsy? I got a case of the clicks and justified buying a $10 print because $2.50 of the purchase goes to Japan. I have zero willpower against the Etsy.
That was a really beautiful video, and I love her explanation of why she uses the camera she does. It makes a lot of sense, because putting myself into the photographee’s position I would act differently too.
Truly beautiful and amazing work!
That’s awesome, I love photography. Wasn’t she supposed to have a movie come out? I saw a clip of it with a homo with a shotgun, FUCK YEAH.
