"When you are not in love, you're not alive." EP

What's true love feel like to you? I created these photographs because I felt lost. I went out looking for answers and I ended up gettin by, high, alone at the Elks Motel in Keremeos, BC. At 4:32 in the AM on August 16th, 2020, as I crawled my way through or into or maybe out of existential fog, Elvis came to me Live in Hawaii through a public access infomercial. He reached out of the teevee and touched me. He looked right at me. He spoke to me.

It did more than charm me to know that Elvis can find you anywhere... but also, that that magical energy, that travels down from the stars and up from the darkest parts of your heart, will and can reach out - and speak to you through the most unexpected but ideal channels. It might just be that I needed to find a way to invite people into a world where that magic is common, because that’s the world that lesbian Elvis exists in. Don't you think? 

If you're not sure, it's here for you.
