ARTISTIC INQUEERIES: Artist & Vendor Highlights!

Rachel Marie Castillo- Larriva,  is the lead photographer and creator of Rachel Marie Photography. Her work was recently featured in the Haunted Hands Gallery during our Artistic InQUEERies event!

Rachel's style of photography centers gender, sexuality, fantasy and the erotic---by queers, for queers. 

Describing her start, Rachel stated:
"My photography started with queers, drag queens, performers and artists about 15 years ago when I was a baby queer and a baby photographer, new to Tucson, having just met my BFF who was in a drag king troupe. I am still excited about the same stuff: bodies, gender, sexuality, fantasy, erotic, pleasure, joy. I collaborate with artists, queers, friends and lovers to make art that celebrates our community. "
