Photoessay: Local Non-Men In Art
In this latest photoessay, we explore a microcosm of art through three local womxn in the Denton scene, each representing a different field of creative expression and bringing to the table a variety of outlooks and backgrounds. Telling their narratives as much through imagery as through language, we delve into the stories and craft of writer Loré Yessuff, photographer Erika Suarez and printmaker Grace Otten. Take a minute, if you will, to appreciate both the images of their work, as well as the visions that go into them.
Loré Yessuff is a recent graduate from the University of North Texas. While in school, she studied creative writing, photography, and journalism. Now, she is job hunting and working on various collaborative projects. Loré is passionate about intimacy, embodiment, and art that evokes hope.
