Joshua and Zachary are Brooklyn based artists who come from distinct creative backgrounds – Zachary is trained in modern drama and performance while Joshua studied photography and video. As teenagers the two brothers began collaborating on photography projects as a means to subvert a reality marked by alienating social constructs and a dysfunctional family. These early works, steeped in adolescent psychosexual energy, documented the fantasy, inhibition and intimacy shared between family and close friends.
