Welcome to Hell, 2019

Welcome to Hell is an examination of what society deems as deviant.
Deviance is referred to as actions or behaviors that violate or break social norms. Culturally these norms vary and therefore behaviors and activities deemed deviant are different across cultures, religions, and locations. I set out to explore how certain bodies and identities are deemed as deviant or socially taboo. The intent of this project is to critique society's standards of how someone should look, act, dress, express themselves, etc. I want to highlight the beauty in these subjects showing how deviance and who gets classified as deviant is all socially constructed.
My series takes a trip into Hell which despite popular belief is a colorful place full of beautiful people.
