INVASION

Untitled Magazine 2019 - In celebration of Pride Month, photographer Aaron Williams redacts his personal story on being gay and coming out. Williams feels like an invader every time he goes back to his middle-American hometown, where his true feelings were mocked and discarded as a child. In his eerie self-portrait series, he documents his feelings of loneliness in his own childhood home – where everything started. “A man behind the curtain, represented here by a mask, unwanted in my home. Breaking into a life I never asked for or wanted. But I made the best of the worst and make ugly things look pretty.”
