The Pink Choice
Even though many people seem to be open about homosexuality, it turned out to be untrue when I showed people photos of homosexual couples in intimate moments. Most of them found the photos disgusting and unacceptable. This reaction was a source of inspiration to me. My goal was to make photos about homosexuals that incite feelings of romantic love that is natural and beautiful. I chose to capture casual daily activities of the couples that can be familiar to anyone. By doing so, I hope to make the audience become interested, then gradually empathize with homosexual people.
Many projects/artworks on homosexuality in Vietnam tend to focus on either deviances (especially in movies, with images of homosexuals portrayed in ridiculous clothing and make-up, mincing, shrewish or rude manners…) or symbolic images. In photography, homosexuals are not presented as themselves in pictures. And if they are, they’re usually photographed from behind or with masks on. These all foster weird and absurd images of homosexuals rather then present more understanding perspectives. In turn, homosexuals become even more intimidated and isolated.
The Pink Choice has a different approach as it seeks out personal stories using direct language: documentary photography to capture real moments and real people.
Moreover, stories about homosexuality in Vietnam and also in the world usually end in tragedy, especially in movies. On one hand, this tragic style of storytelling can make audience become more sympathetic and understanding of the difficulties that homosexuals experience. On the other hand, the drama of homosexuals can also cause misunderstandings that lives of homosexuals are vulnerable and regretful, and that the choice to “come out” is an incredible effort against the community’s way of life. The point is, in real life, there are many homosexual people who live happily with their identity. There are homosexual couples who love, nurture and build a happy family life together.
The Pink Choice is a series of photos about the love of homosexual couples which focus on living spaces, the affectionate touches, and more importantly, the synchronized rhythm of lovers sharing life together. Viewers may not feel the personalities of the subjects in the photos, but hopefully they can feel the warmth of their love and caring. In way, I wanted to show what I see of homosexual people and not how they see themselves.

Anonymous asked: I find it degrading that you would subject Misha by only his ass. He has better qualities that should be appreciated.
I appreciate Misha Collins and everything about him. I appreciate his intelligence and his wit, his sense of humor and his charm. The way he tells stories and captivates an audience, and the way he makes you feel at ease in person. The way he reaches out to fans, the way he cares wholeheartedly for strangers and the way he enjoys making people laugh. I appreciate the way he wants to help change the world and the way he is open about his past. I appreciate his kind heart and the way he tears up when he talks about a sentimental moment in his life, his passion for learning and his hatred for normalcy. I appreciate the fact that he wants to be the best person he can be because people look up to him and that he cares about the greater good.
I can also appreciate his physical attributes like his soft hands and his warm smile, his broad shoulders, his perfect 30 degree angle nose and his cobalt blue eyes.
And yes on occasion his fabulous booty.
But that doesn’t mean I’m subjecting him because of it. I appreciate Mishas’ everything and sometimes you have to cut off a slice and examine the smaller pieces closely in order to appreciate the whole.
