LaQuann Dawson is a photographer and filmmaker from Ohio now based in Brooklyn, New York. He is a Black, queer artist who is in love with Black and queer art. LaQuann got his start in photography by taking self-portraits just to feel pretty, and properly captured. His work now explores and celebrates isolation and the sexual ritual. It is a blooming conversation between seen and unseen (or unnoticed) ostentatious acts of love, desire and disappointment.
