Weekend Portfolio: Wednesday Aja

Wednesday Aja is known for documenting modern day subcultures and exploring themes of custom, costume, and community. Her photographs and graphic design work reverberate with the inherent human need for escape and play. Aja’s images invite the viewer into an inverted Land of Oz, one where the imagination ignites in black and white, in the space between light and shadow.

These images are from ongoing projects “Troupes and Tribes” and “Pin Up Side Down” which center on the gender, identity, and gravity-defying subcultures of Drag, Circus, and Burlesque. Visual explorations of the self’s relationship to masque, costume, and unbridled expressions of personhood.
