We, The Queer
Harry McCallum is a contemporary documentary and portrait photographer engaging with notions of identity, sexuality, interactions with domestic space and socio-political relationships. He is passionate about creating provoking projects that encourage the viewer to consider alternative perspectives. We, The Queer examines the LGBTQ+ community in the South West, documenting individuals within their immediate domestic settings. The work focuses on themes of queer loneliness and seeks to address broader aspects such as the lack of mental health funding and safe spaces. Alongside the portraits are short statements written by the model, giving insight into their experience and stories. The work acts as both a challenge and a provocation when considering notions of difference.
