The works in this series are recreations of the works of Michelangelo Merisi di Caravaggio on the 500th anniversary of his death.  The models are friends and colleagues from my queer community in San Francisco, utilizing contemporary props and costumes to create new narratives inspired by Caravaggio's paintings.
