Recommendation: The work of Andy Karol

Lee recommends…

Two portraits from “Eden: Expressions in Gender” photographed by Andy Karol, of two individuals, both POC, who identify on the gender spectrum as variant or fluid. Kokumo, on the left, is standing in a river, with the afro cut looking like a halo, closely holding water plants almost looking like a net, and eyes closed head towards the sky. Kia, on the right, is bald-shaven, with a simple circular ring in each ear, and is almost hidden between grass, with just the head emerging, staring into the camera with a piercing, powerful look.

The work of Andy Karol
A portrait project

This project lives through me. It is a concept, a bridge, a running topic, a challenge, and many other things. The images haunt, linger, inspire, incite, and provoke. I want people to understand the ability to strip down our gender to our inner selves and this is why nudity is used. The classic play on the Biblical ‘Eden’ reaches this importance. Gender spills out of us in uncontrollable ways and when we realize this then the real play begins. The quality of this work is based on years of experience and passion.
