In Search Of: Others Like Me
Calling all gender nonconforming individuals. I want the world to know our stories. This project is a spin off/continuation of the Disappearing Butch. It consists of a two types of photoshoots and a recorded interview.
As a person who identifies as a butch lesbian, Theresa Scott set off to discover others like herself, questioning if these individuals had similar experiences in navigating the world, developing into the person present today and the opinion of the butch disappearing from the LGBTQ+ community. While the stories give the audience a view into the history and struggle one may face, the images presented allow one to see who these magnificent individuals are—combining traditional portraits that examine each person’s dapper side. In contrast, lifestyle photographs allow a glimpse into the subject’s world and passions.
