'Schentell' Poster Print by Simone Thompson
- Shipping Information
TRNK Editions presents MIEN - a cross-section of queer artists of color who leverage portraiture photography to explore identity beyond visibility. 100% of proceeds will be donated to The Ali Forney Center.
Rather than presenting queerness as a cultural homology, these images take authorship over individual lived experience while acknowledging contributions to a representative body politic. Expressly, by bringing these diverse works in conversation with one another, this show makes legible the inherent tension between community and self.
Each work is presented as a limited-edition, 20"x30" poster ($75 Unframed, $250 Framed). 100% of proceeds from the sale will be donated to the Ali Forney Center to combat LGBTQ youth homelessness in NYC.
This poster is derived from a photo titled 'Schentell' by artist Simone Thompson.
My piece 'Schentell,' was captured to portray the intimacy and stillness that can be found within the confines of a city landscape. This portrait continues to resonate with me because it reflects the strength, balance and inner calm I felt within the subject.
This portrait was taken on the 30th birthday of one of my good friends while I was living in NYC. I took it early on in my photography journey, and it was one of the first photos I shot that provided me with a very specific and lasting feeling. I like the softness and feminity conveyed here despite it being a hectic, bustling day in New York, and it was nice to provide a close friend with a portrait of herself on such a milestone birthday. It felt really intimate and special.
Simone Thompson is a freelance photographer based in Los Angeles. She primarily shoots 35mm & 120mm film. Her work has been featured in i - D Magazine, Pitchfork, Bandcamp, Live Fast Mag, Cake Magazine & Drome Magazine, to name a few.
