Desert Flowers is a Polaroid SX-70 series featuring the American Southwest in bloom and its queer youth, serving as documentation of both ecological and cultural resilience, perseverance, and beauty by bridging a connection between desert ecology and sexual identity. These Polaroids were taken predominantly in 2016 and touch the Mojave, Sonoran, and Chihuahuan deserts, spanning the states of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, and California.
Artist Talk with JC Gonzo
October 21, 2021 • 1pm-2pm via Zoom
JC Gonzo (b. 1989) takes investigative photographic excursions; researching, documenting, and re-contextualizing sub- and counter-cultural histories as a form of meta-ecology. These reports are depicted through a variety of media that function both as a referential document and a celebration of chaos as exhibited by the natural world.
