For the exhibition Gay Arms, Grant Shaffer presents a new body of photographic work.
The series is documentary in style, with its subjects pulled from the artist’s life. Shaffer describes his artistic process as a means of understanding: “When I’m taking pictures, I think of myself as an alien who’s here for a while, trying to understand the experience of my sliver of life on this planet. It’s hard to say what my photos and this show are about. It’s just intuitive. It’s very personal and at the same time very public. It’s me trying to take in the world and asking people to notice or consider something.”
