Anguish & Anger & Activism & Hope

Sam Orchard’s comic strip Transgender Day of Remembrance speaks to me when I see it at InsideOUT’s art auction in Cuba Street.

InsideOUT are a national organization that works to make Aotearoa a safer place for young people of minority genders and sexualities.

In eight frames Sam makes me feel anguish and anger and activism and ultimately hope that “one day it will be”.

I also love that when I adjust the photograph to high contrast and colour saturation I see the traces of the original line drawings ..layers on layers.
