It’s Pride Month at NPL! We’re commemorating the month of acceptance and love by highlighting 6 LGBTQ photographers who have gorgeous Instagram feeds.
Ryan Duffin, @ryanduffin
A Canadian photographer living in Brooklyn, Ryan Duffin plays with lighting and muted colors to create breathtakingly real portraits of his subjects. Speaking to It’s Nice That, he notes of his style: “I look to capture the subtle nuances of each subject that makes them individual, interesting and unique.”
Elliott Jerome Brown Jr, @elliottjeromebrownjr
Scroll through Elliott Jerome Brown Jr.’s feed, and you’ll be struck by how much more there is to each image. Calling his work “a documented abstraction of daily life,” Brown focuses on intimacy as well as the differences between the public and private selves.
Kevin Aranibar-Molina, @kerokev
Photographing everyone from Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez to the cast of Netflix’s Queer Eye, Kevin Aranibar-Molina’s feed is a colorful tour de force to scroll through.
Ryan James Caruthers, @ryanjamescaruthers
You’ll see a lot of people you recognize on Ryan James Caruthers’ Instagram – like Charles Melton from Riverdale and Christopher Abbott and Jemima Kirke of Girls fame. But, more than the celebs, it’s a dream going through his muted and refreshingly honest portraits.
Laurence Philomene, @laurencephilomene
The color in Laurence Philomene’s photos is simply out of this world. Based in Montreal, most of Laurence’s work focuses on identity through a queer lens.
David Uzochukwu, @daviduzochukwu
The youngest of the photographers listed here, David Uzochukwu’s work stands out in the way he uses lighting to create something otherworldly.
