The IDENTITY Project by photographer Chris Jepson, an exploration of what it means to identiy as a member of the LGBTQ+ community today, is currently on display at PlusX Brighton, which creates co-working spaces that drive business growth and innovation, community collaboration and social impact in Brighton and London, for LGBT History Month.
Kindly supported by Brighton & Hove Pride Cultural Development Fund, the black & white images encourage the viewer to look beyond the trappings of location and engage directly with the sitter. The diverse faces of LGBTQ+ people from innumerable walks of life aim to challenge the stereotypes and assumptions to dispel the myths of perceived identity.
As a multi-exhibited body of work, IDENTITY gives visibility to marginalised LGBTQ+ people promoting a diverse and inclusive community.
Chris Jepson said on Twitter: “If you are heading up the Lewes Road, Brighton, do keep an eye out for my Identity Project which is currently on display for LGBT History Month at the brilliant Plus X Innovation Hub. Free entry – come up and see the 25 portraits of LGBTQIA people.”
