Portraits of Skylar Kergil

Photographing Sky is always a treat. The combination of our friendship and Sky's transparent and camera-comfortable lifestyle means that we can both relax and make interesting, creative images. In this session with Sky, I wanted to capture a day in his life - traveling on the T, walking around Boston, spending time with his cat, shaving, the rush of creativity and sunset practice sessions. 

It has been wonderful to watch Sky gain success in his music and be acknowledged for his voice in the trans masculine community. He's recently been featured in the Atlantic, Upworthy, FTM Magazine, and is working on his new EP, "Tell Me a Story." It's inspiring to watch as the world listens to his story.

Below is one of my favorite videos by Sky, talking about his life and celebrating 5 years on testosterone. See more on his youtube channel and website

Driftwood Intimacy

06032014-DriftwoodIntimacy-JuliaLuckettPhotography-51

Two of my favorite photographers, Nan Goldin and Kelli Connell, focus on intimacy in their work. The more I study their images, the more I feel their work touches on the elusive quality that surrounds friendship and love. This summer I wanted to create a photograph for Anisocoria that touched on my own experience with intimacy.

I decided to create an image that was more fantastical rather than documentary, so when I found this driftwood on the shore I knew it would be a fitting location.
