The Viewfinder: An Interview with Zoée Nuage – Elizabeth Sweeney
NMP, 33 Solitude, Mai/Juin, 2014
Zoée Nuage is a Deaf Queer photographer who lives in Vancouver and grew up on the West Coast of Canada, in unceded Coast Salish territories. Her work focuses heavily on themes of identity, such as deafness, sexuality, gender, language, and imagination, often through visual storytelling and self-portraiture. This issue’s cover image is from her ongoing series titled Solitude. I was first introduced to Zoée’s work while on an award selection committee initiated by the Deaf Culture Centre in Toronto. Nuage’s submission, titled The Last Supper, won first place.
