About the series

Over the years, I have amassed a huge dressing up box, which I have accumulated from different parts of my life. Aids patient to university professor, gender bender to porn star, go-go dancer to boxer/wrestler, drag queen to leather queen, son to daddy! 

As I approach my sixth decade, I’m reflecting on past lives and the unknown of the future. I am dipping into the dressing up box to create new and potentially different roles, all the time playing with gender, identity, sexuality, subjectivity, masculinity, and everything in between. This series is very much about play, of unthinking in a place of unknowing – an exciting place where anything can happen and nothing is predetermined.
