Jess T. Dugan’s series Every Breath We Drew explores the power of identity, desire, and connection through portraits of herself and others. Her photographs challenge our perceptions of identity and the attitudes often defined by it. Her series Every Breath We Drew began with the idea of photographing people who demonstrated a common sense of identity she could connect with, whether physically or emotionally. Jess’s photographs have been featured in The New York Times, The Boston Globe, Fusion Network, Advocate, and Photograph Magazine. Currently on view at AIPAD 2015 are two of Jess T. Dugan’s self-portraits. Make sure to stop by Booth #204!
In most of my images I want you to have to participate, even if it’s just to take stock of what your reaction is to that, but also to be invited into this moment in a positive way. – Jess T. Dugan
