New Queer Photography
“There is a quiet softness at work in Donal Talbot's guileless photographs, what David Getsy once called "a feeling of undefined embodied intimacy" that is inherent to many forms of queer art, especially portraiture. Flowers bloom out of poppers bottles sitting offhand on a windowsill, or creep out from behind the ear of a subject sitting still, or cover the eye of another person who seems to have been caught mid-blink. Full of elfin, androgynous bodies washed in natural light that could be late morning or late evening, these photographs come from a series of pictures of young queer transplants in New York City.”
