Final Project Proposal



Kazu Iwasawa



Tentative Series Name:

Gay Culture

State Idea:

For this series I want to focus on portraits of gay males to show the world we live in.

How will you execute idea?

I plan to focus on both formal and environmental portraits of gay males using primarily natural light. I will have some elements that represent the gay pop culture in the pictures.

Why is this topic important to you? What do you want other people to understand? What do you hope this series will accomplish?

I want to focus on this topic because I want people to know myself and the world I live in. A lot of the times, straight people don’t know who is Ru Paul, what is femme, or how we find a date. I want this series to be an eye opening and fun information for the people who are not familiar with gay culture.

Any special conditions, equipment, or techniques needed?

I will be taking these pictures pretty straight forward, but I might use a tripod, reflector, or a color gel filter for the lighting.

Output Method and Size:

For the series I plan on using prints sized 8×10.
