Shoot me

Faina Cortes


I love this woman so much. When she mentioned that she had a pretty boy alt that I could photograph, I wasn't sure what to expect…and then she showed up with gun tattoos on her arms. "What else should I wear?" She asked me. "Well, guns, of course!"

Faina Cortes is an amazing visual artist who always challenges my assumptions about gender and sexuality. Her in-world and real-life art shows women revelling in and mocking sexuality both at once, graphic and gorgeous and … uh, glistening. When I saw her first art installation it blew my mind, and you can see some of her work here on her Flickr stream.

She continues to challenge my assumptions here in these photos… Such a pretty boy with such big guns!
