SAMANTHA BOX – INVISIBLE

 

A series of photographs taken between 2005 - 2012,

New York City

 

Since 2005, Samantha Box has dedicated herself to documenting New York City’s community of homeless lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) youth.
          
Her on-going project, INVISIBLE, has been recognized by the Anthropographia Award for Photography and Human Rights, EN FOCO, and the New York Foundation for the Arts. It has been widely exhibited, most notably, in 2010 at The Sanctuary for Independent Media in Troy, NY, and in 2011 as part of the Open Society Institute’s “Moving Walls #18” exhibition.


“The young people that I photograph are some of the most resilient people that I have ever met: despite facing societal animosity of homo- and transphobia, and the burden of a broken system that conspires to keep them homeless. They continuously work for a future where their talents and intellect can be used, where they have a home, a family and a life of stability.” - Samantha Box on Time/Lightbox, June 12, 2012
