I found a weird sense of comfort in Claude Cahun’s work; the expressiveness and unapologetic flame they had when it came to their individuality and the work they did work about slightly taboo like sexuality and identity through self-portraiture, masquerade, and collage. 

 I created seven collages with the themes of identity and sexuality with my own photography, Man Ray’s work, & work from a book about the history of portraiture in printmaking.

 These collages visually explain the struggle and the truth behind the mask I wore for so many years.
