Using photography, text, and video, Tammy Rae Carland tactically realigns presumptive ideas of love, partnership, domesticity, and family. In her work, positive representations function simultaneously as portrait and as protest. Based in Oakland, she is the chair of the photography program at California College of the Arts. Her work has influenced a generation of artists committed to subverting heteronormative conceptions of gender and sexuality.
