Easy World is a culmination of images made using a 4×5 view camera and expired FP100 peel apart film, mounted on raw steel frames.
June’s photographic work in Easy World is an invitation to the limits of visibility. Through careful and collaborative moments combined with unreliable equipment – she constructs a landscape of bodies both shielded and confrontational.
What is imprecise about the images is also what lends them to expansion. What they do not reveal, or what they do not say, or what they do not adhere to in the arena of gender and sexuality. In these cases – a photograph is neither a document nor a replication of the world. It is a reflection of desire. A transformation and an assertion. A moment to transfigure.
June T Sanders is a trans artist living in the hills of rural Eastern WA. She is an Assistant Professor with the Digital Technology & Culture Department at Washington State University. Her images reflect a world yet to be.
