I would rather be with her than anywhere else in the world. I want to protect her from everything past present and future. She means more to me than I can ever explain to you, so much that I am compelled to try.     Love Ethic  is an on going project about my partner, Libby. It is a portrait of her through my queer/trans/non-binary gaze and it is an exploration in making pictures about her double illegibility; Libby is a Mexican-American, queer, Femme and often mistaken in daily life as being white and straight.
       
     
 Libby and I make pictures that explore how I look at her and how she enacts herself in her daily struggle to be seen for who she. They are also about how I feel toward her and my struggle to make images that both reveal her identity and protect her. Collapsing the way I look at her and the way she performs herself this body of work positions the viewer as my surrogate and invites you to see with my gaze. Libby and I invite you to look in a new way, to see with a love ethic.
