Through the Lens of Desire

Through the Lens of Desire creates implied narratives using snapshots from the 1920s- 1950s.  Vernacular photographs from that era were created as private keepsakes and the unselfconscious intimacy they depict feels authentic and relatable.  As modern viewers, we witness personal moments that were never intended to be public.  By purposefully selecting images that picture men together and women together I am creating an imaginary queer past.  I am drawn to the subtle points of contact and the spaces between the figures pictured.  Each gesture or distracted glance holds a story, and it is these stories that reflect my own desire and experiences.  – Kris Sanford
