In celebration of Keith Haring’s legacy, we partnered with Billie Black (@billiexblack). Billie is a queer film photographer based in LA, with a portfolio full of evocative portraiture. We sent them a Keith Haring edition Now camera and film. In the resulting photo series, Billie pays homage to the late artist and activist with a series of portraits featuring artists of today from the LGBTQIA+ community.
Words and photos by Billie Black.
With this photo project I really wanted to give representation to as many different queer artists as I could. My queer community means the most to me as they are my chosen family and the people that I am able to be my most authentic self around. Especially through art, queer representation is so important because we are often overlooked as artists and people. Queer people exist in many different forms and express themselves so differently. This project was a way for me to highlight some amazing queer artists that I have around me that are creating beautiful and authentic work for our community.
