Item Description


Individual identity and sexuality are constructs far more complicated and fluid than we typically give them credit for. They are multifaceted, constantly changing and evolving in relation to our private experiences and relationships with others. Though these identities are internal and psychological, they are read and understood by others through our actions and bodies. Every breath we drew explores the power of identity, desire, and connection through intimate portraits.

Jess T. Dugan is an artist whose work explores issues of gender, sexuality, identity, and community.  Jess earned a BFA in Photography from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, a Master of Liberal Arts in Museum Studies from Harvard University, and is currently pursuing an MFA in Photography from Columbia College Chicago.  

Jess’s work has been exhibited nationwide, including exhibitions at the Museum of Fine Arts, and is a permanent feature in several other collections, including the Harvard Art Museum.
