"As the saying goes, 'Charity starts at home.' For me, so does embracing my queer identity. My artistic pursuit delves into the realm of queer sensuality within the confines of one's abode. The Polaroid, a medium both instant and untouched by modern editing, offers a lens of nostalgia. I aim this lens inward, seeking to grasp the inexpressible. Perhaps, true comprehension eludes me."
