    Jess T. Dugan is interested in representations of identity, particularly as they apply to LGBTQ communities. This image is from their Family Pictures series, for which Dugan presents pictures of their own family to speak to multigenerational, queer family visibility. The full body of work captures an array of significant everyday scenes, such as this still life of two candles within the home.
