What does queerness look like beyond the body? n e w f l e s h, a project published by Gnomic Book in September 2019, will challenge conventional notions of gender and identity studies. A collection of works by 68 artists, and essays by Charlotte Cotton and Ashley McNelis, n e w f l e s h hopes to reclaim certain ideas of what queer is capable of.

All too often, the body is used as a form of control. The works in n e w f l e s h  ascend peculiarity and convention. It’s by removing titles and preconceptions that these works question the expectations around photography that deals with the body. It’s my hope that making room to question the status quo in this way will lead to new paths of equality and interactions between us as individuals. New concepts and conversations may be hard, but it is time to start having them.

The artists in n e w f l e s h abstract the subjects and materials they use. These works embody a mastery of what is possible in front of the camera, as well as technologically once the photo has been made. These images force us to look beyond the familiar, so that we may see them for what they could become.
