My name is Jesse Ryan Crosby, and I am a queer, non-binary transgender, Fine Art
Photographer. My work spans a variety of formats, including analog, digital, instant camera, and video art, all of which speak to themes of identity, gender, memory, and place. Photography is a way for me to document, validate, cherish, and reflect. I have used photography as a means to record my life, and to explore my queer identity through self-portraiture. I make photographs that reflect an honest, diaristic, autobiographical essence. I provide the same for my clients. Documenting authentic moments that allow those I photograph to see themselves, and express their identity, their narrative, is my ultimate mission. As an LGBTQIA+ photographer, I provide a platform to be understood, welcomed, seen, and respected for who we are.
My practice is translucent, transparent, gracious, devoted, tender, intense, pure and unfettered. I am here to share stories, as my vision continues to expand and convey the purity of the human condition. My transparency is driven from my heart, and it rings just as true for my client's.
