DATELINE:36 features the photographic documentation of people who use and abuse life to the maximum. Joga Boyd is a black Trans man based in Cincinnati, Ohio. Boyd has been in recovery from drugs and alcohol and their day job is being a drug and alcohol counselor. Under the handle of @egomaps35mm on Instagram Boyd documents the daily lives of the people they meet with little to no regard for what is considered taboo in America today. The result is haunting and genuine work that serves as a startling yet beautiful expose into the darker side of the human condition.
Daniel Alexander Orr investigates themes of isolation and transience through images of nature's clash with human desire and longing. In contrast to Jóga's work, Daniel’s work examines restraint and distance through sampled views of daily life and portraiture, confronting the dichotomous pull between destruction and preservation - socially, politically, personally and existentially.
