Daybreak: New Affirmations in Queer Photography features twelve emerging photographers whose work engages with queer identities and perspectives. The work in this exhibition argues for fullness, potentiality, complexity, nuance, and for a queer future. The photographers included in Daybreak employ an array of strategies, a determined engagement with the medium of photography, and a through-line of affirmation. The twelve photographers are: Kevin Aranibar, Elliott Jerome Brown Jr., Ryan James Caruthers, Ryan Duffin, Andrew Jarman, Mikaela Lungulov-Klotz, Groana Melendez, Vanessa Rondón, Alexis Ruiseco-Lombera, Matthew Papa, Jess Richmond, and Elias Jesús Rischmawi.
