JJ Levine: “Alone Time” focuses on the gender binary in domestic settings (PHOTOS). JJ Levine The Montreal-based photographer JJ Levine has been photographing the trans and queer communities since 2006. His portraiture work includes series that are personal and intimate and others that challenge the ways in which sexuality and the gender binary play out in contemporary society. For the series “Alone Time,” Levine recreated and photographed typical domestic environments that play with gender stereotypes. As a twist, he used only one model to play both the male and female characters in the image. Each image was shot at the home of the model, often one of Levine’s friends.

Although hair and curves would be added or removed during the shoot, Levine doesn’t digitally alter anything gender-related in post-production. JJ Levine Levine’s interest in creative portraiture began to develop at a young age. Levine said he identifies as trans and queer, and his sexuality and gender are important only because they inform so much of his work. Elle perez. BUTCH — Meg Allen Studio. BUTCH is a environmental portraiture project and exploration of the butch aesthetic, identity and presentation of female masculinity as it stands in 2013-14.

It is a celebration of those who dwell outside of the stringent social binary that separates the sexes and a glimpse into the private and often unseen spaces of people who exude their authentic sense of self. In recent years, like so many other pejorative terms used to oppress minorities, BUTCH is being reclaimed and infused with beauty and pride to more accurately describe a person who claims their female masculinity.

These people may choose to cut their hair short, may wear ties, or may swagger with more strength than coyness. BUTCH is an adjective. And like all adjectives, it is fluid and subjective. Just as there are many types of hot women, there are many types of butches. These portraits are of the people I know in the San Francisco Bay Area who relate to and claim the term BUTCH. BUTCH is an exploration. Mike Brodie Photography. SCOTT TOEPFER PROVES THAT ANYTHING GIRLS CAN DO– GUYS CAN DO BETTER!

There comes a time in every young adult's life when you realize it's time to stop waking up with a couple of hours of daylight left, quit that part-time web-based graphic design gig you'd desperately hoped would work out, and start engaging with real life rather than soldiering on in your little, self-entitled bubble. This usually happens somewhere between one year afer you graduate college and your weirdo school friend's unexpected wedding and/or pregnancy. What follows is normally a substance-fuelled crisis phase where you try to rationalize and plan absolutely everything that's going to happen in your life over the next 60 years.

There are, of course, more creative ways of dealing with this. I, for one, developed a pants collection that today boasts 64 separate items. My new Russian photographer friend, Jana Romanova, on the other hand, started creeping into pregnant peoples' bedrooms while they were asleep to take their pictures for a series called Waiting.

Mens jeg var fanget i Warszawa med frosne fingre og kolde bukser. Helt gråt var der. Sådan en ækel grå, der kryber under trøjen og kradser i huden, og får én til panisk at hive efter vejret. Beskeden så jeg først, da jeg var på vej ud. “Vær sød at ringe til mig. Knus Trine.” "They don’t make people like that anymore", sagde den amerikanske grandkusine til begravelsen og ordene fulgtes af 12 forskellige vers sunget af det norske familiekor. Mens du stadig var på hospitalet, tilbragte jeg 2 nætter alene i dit hus. Goodyn Green Photographer. Anne B. Kelly: Smolder And Shoot: Photographer Tasya Van Ree.

If Ellen von Unwerth and Helmut Newton had a love child the result could be photographer and rising art star Tasya Van Ree. With heart and soul laid bare and often decorated in inky poetry, Van Ree's high contrast portraits manage to appear both fashionably staged and caught in-the-moment, documenting her very personal relationships with her subjects. Stir in a bit of the occasional circus-like atmosphere of Los Angeles celebrity and the photos are sexy and striking. Untitled, 2005, Los Angeles ©Tasya Van Ree. Courtesy of the artist.

She attributes photojournalists such as Henri Cartier-Bresson and Weegee as her main source of inspiration: "There is this undying interest with the traditional seduction of black and white film.
