Peaches is an ongoing portrait series of queer people of colour executed through the use of black and white film photography and then screen-printed using silver ink. The series asks us to consider the representation of queer people of colour more broadly: their underrepresentation in the media and experiences of invisibility and discrimination. The colour silver acts as a vehicle to signify the invisibility and negation of identity which is felt. It also shows an undeniable beauty that resonates with each portrait, and each subject is posed in a stance of strength with a powerful gaze. By reaching out to individuals, EME was able to connect with them personally, creating a support-network and safe space of friendship; ultimately connecting everyone with each other at a dinner event on the 5th of November, 2016.
