TED Talk // Fifty Shades of Gay by iO Tillett Wright

Must-watch talk.

For me, photography is not just about exposing film, it’s about exposing the viewer to something new, a place they haven’t gone before, but most importantly, to people that they might be afraid of. Life magazine introduced generations of people to distant, far-off cultures they never knew existed through pictures. So I decided to make a series of very simple portraits, mugshots if you will. And I basically decided to photograph anyone in this country that was not 100 percent straight, which, if you don’t know, is a limitless number of people.
