Hi I’m John Burke, a photographer and retoucher living in Brooklyn, New York. My personal work currently focuses on shooting members of the trans, gender non-binary and queer communities. I treat most of the images with collage. I like the mutability and expansiveness of the approach and feel it speaks to the subjects ability to change and self determine their identity. Additionally I’d like to shoot other sub sets of culture similarly disregarded and disenfranchised. Whether this evolves into shooting minorities, immigrants or the homeless I’m not sure yet.
