My project is a collection of images depicting myself, my ex fiancé Zoe, and our son Charlie. The images centre around themes of youth, change and growth, exploring our relationship dissolution to which had begun at the beginning of the first lock down in May 2020. I have used the project to self-reflect on personal experiences, underpinning queer identity within these domestic spaces and the changing relationships between the three of us in the process. The work unearths common misconceptions of gender roles and performative constitutes, and how these ideologies create negative connotations towards the LGBTQ parenting community. MY next step is to use this experience to connect with wider audiences throughout the LGBTQ community to better represent them within the parenting world.
