Over the past decade, Jess T. Dugan has created intimate portraits that engage with issues of identity, sexuality, gender and community. Her first book, Every Breath We Drew, compiles color portraits of the artist and others. Working within the framework of queer experience and actively constructed masculinity, these portraits examine the intersection between private, individual identity and the search for intimate connection with others. The photographs are made in private spaces, often the subject's home or bedroom, using medium- and large-format cameras to create a sustained engagement that results in an intimate portrait.
With text by curator Amy Galpin and an interview by acclaimed photographer Dawoud Bey, this hardcover is an important addition to the canon of queer photography.
