There is something voyeuristic about drawing from someone else’s photographs.  There is this separation that takes places between sentimental value of the photograph and the image becoming objective when appropriated into an artwork. Susan Sontag states in her essay On Photography states that “to photograph is to appropriate the thing photographed. It means putting oneself into certain relation to the world that feels like knowledge—and, therefore, like power.” What are the power dynamics when that image is again appropriated into a drawing? What is my relationship as artist making muses out of another artist muse? What are the gender and queer politics in place? These are all questions that permeate this series that I am interested investigating. Photography reference from the personal collection of photographer Colby Jones.
