2017 Leeway Transformation Award – $15,000

Eva Wŏ is a queer mixed-race photographer, videographer, and curator, born in New Mexico and based in Philadelphia since 2010. She is known for creating strikingly colorful, complex, and uncompromising photographic portraits of queer, trans and nonbinary icons and community members. She facilitates care-based photo, video, and design projects with queer artists, event organizers, activists, performers, and sex workers with the aim to uplift and celebrate collaborators through an intentional and responsive process. Her current projects include an on-going portrait series, AFTERWARDS, and organizing the annual Hot Bits XXX Film Festival, Philly’s only queer porn festival. Her work creates visibility for marginalized identities, expands possibilities for self-determination, and visualizes queer liberation.
