Celebrating Pride 2021

In celebration of #Pride month, we have curated a new collection showcasing art that champions the LGBTQ+ community. Tabitha Soren sources imagery from LGBTQ+ orientated publications to form layered and dynamic conceptual photographs. Carrie Stanley Smith captures intimate portraits that delve into notions of gender and drag culture. Oleksandr Balbyshev explores themes of male sexuality and sensuality through a style that merges elements of surrealism and pop art. Explore more works celebrating Pride and championing the Queer artistic community in our Pride 2021 collection.
