FotoFest will present I Am a Camera, an exhibition featuring nine international artists exhibiting work focused on communities; specifically lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, queer (LGBTQ) and questioning communities. I Am A Camera is about representation, sexual orientation, gender identity expression and society. The members of the communities pictured self-identify across a broad spectrum of sexuality, gender roles, race, class, culture and politics. A varied and diverse population, it resists generalization and traditional, normative expectations. As such, LGBTQ communities have defined themselves on their own terms. I Am A Camera is an exhibition that also performs as a conduit for sexual orientation and gender identity expression.

The artists in I Am A Camera explore a number of humanist themes, including relationships, self-realization and determination, class struggle, and community and space building. Their works encompass traditional black & white photography, contemporary staged photography, film, video and installation work. They represent a wide spectrum of sexual identification – lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and queer-allied.

The artists include Zackary Drucker & Rhys Ernst (USA); Sunil Gupta (India/UK); Lindsay Morris (USA); Frédéric Nauczyciel (France); Irina Popova (Russia); Anna Charlotte Schmid (Germany); Paul Mpagi Sepuya (USA) and Charan Singh (India).

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through August 29.
