Client in Brooklyn

To Whom this May Concern, Who am I? I am a gay male artist/photographer who recently moved to Brooklyn from North Carolina after graduating with highest honors and distinction with a BFA from UNC-CH. I also have a minor in Women and Gender Studies. I am honored to work for curator Diego Cortez and for artist Anthony Goicolea. As an artist and a feminist, I have conducted extensive photographic studies exploring familial history, gender construction, and sexuality with regard to identity fabrication through masquerade. Okay, so what do I want? I am interested in maternal art, but no longer live in the same state as my parents. I am looking for a "mother" or mothers that will pose alone and with me in photographs for my current "Surrogates" collection of images. What will this entail? I hope to establish a friendship with those that I decide to work with. Ideally, you will be of an age where it is biologically possible for you to be my mother- Im twenty-two. Also, as I am interested in maternal spaces, we will be working out of your home for the photographs. Hopefully, these photo sessions will occur multiple times. As bizarre as this sounds, I'd love for you to reach out and maybe we could have some fun and make stunning images together! Please check out my site if you want to know more about what I do and a get a better sense for my aesthetic considerations. My incredibly supportive parents are in many of the images and will give you an idea of the kind of work that I do. If you are interested in working with me, please provide a brief description of yourself and a couple pictures of your home- they dont have to be elaborate. I will help you to get your home back to its original state before I leave for the day. www.....com Thanks so much! Best, Gray
