“I think its important especially in this time that the community finds ways to support artists throughout Durham because talented artists continue to pour their passion into their work. I want to help share the beauty of the diverse people within our community. I am sharing portraits of a Durham-based drag/performance art community by the name of Shipshowz, along with local artists. Remember that what is for you will never miss you and that we have so much to be grateful for in this time if we hold space to appreciate what we have.”—Jaylan Rhea
