Lily Hook is creating photography and visual art

Hello there, 

I'm Lily, I’m a genderqueer Arab, a sex-positive feminist, a visual artist and a photographer. 

My work focuses mainly on the porosity between fiction and reality, body language, diaspora and gender issues (including bodypositivity and erotica). I also work a lot with lost properties that I collect and assemble. Recently I've started working on several other projects such as performances and videos that I'm still scribbling about.

Since summer 2016, I've started shooting and interviewing queer-identified persons and discussing with them the complexity of their identity, choices of visibility and their relationship to public space. The aim of this project is to offer a more accurate and diverse representation of queer people as well as a platform for them to discuss how they resist the oppressions they face and how they empower themselves. Obviously, it serves to question queer normativity and the invisibility of queer people of color, disabled queers, fat queers, gender non-conforming queers, queer elders and all queers that haven't felt like their "queer cred" is acknowledged. 
The project is now online &on going, and I would love your feedback: Out There

You can find my work on my Cargo, Tumblr, Facebook and sometimes on my Instagram (even though I mainly post food, cats, and selfies) and on Twitter, where I talk a lot about queer feminism, astrology, diaspora, pop culture and representation (in French &in English).

  • Why support my work?

By supporting my work you're supporting a QPOC* artist who's been creating content for over ten years and helping me pay for my website and domain. You also (and mainly) help me travel and photograph more people around Europe and elsewhere for Out There. You help me pay for prints for my zines, photographs and any other creative material I might think of in the future. You make a difference in my creative process knowing I can spend more time and energy on it and feel supported, which is a MAJOR boost for me, as you can imagine.

  • How does it work?

To support me just choose the amount you wish to pledge for (you can find more info about the rewards on the right sidebar) and go for it! You'll be charged only once a month and you get access to all the Patreon exclusive contents, sneak peeks at my work in progress, unseen photographs, vlogs I'll be doing to document my process and some of you might even get a postcard! The Patron club is an exclusive group for the people supporting my work, we'll have exclusive online meetups and chat together a few times a year because you guys rock.

You can edit or cancel your pledge at all time without fees 

Thank you so much for reading this and showing interest in my work!

Goals

Hey y'alls ! 

This first goal would mean a lot to me, it'll pay for my website domain and storage, help pay for prints for my zines and photographs and maybe even for travels so I could shoot more people and places ♡

All of your help is greatly appreciated and it will mean the world to me knowing you believe in my work and help me make a (little) living out of it !
