About

Hi, I'm Trista.

I am a queer disabled photographer, writer, model, and interdisciplinary artist. My work is fueled by exploring human story and personal identity.

 

I am an advocate for disability issues and ableism awareness through personal and collaborative projects, with a strong focus on sexuality. I am driven by social justice values and involvement including environmental, racial, disability, and transformative justice and police abolition. 

My work in intimate portraits as a photographer focuses on breaking down barriers to illuminate vulnerability and individual personalities.

My driving force for making and intent of my artwork and advocacy practice is to cultivate joy and foster connectedness with each other and within ourselves.
