Caldwell Linker’s photos of Pittsburgh’s LGBQT communities


Caldwell Linker: All Through the Night

Caldwell Linker has worked in photography for over 15 years and has produced a large body of work depicting LGBQT individuals and events.  All Through the Night presents a selection of images executed since the artist’s relocation to Pittsburgh in 2007 and reveals an intimate and celebratory portrait of Pittsburgh’s vibrant LGBQT communities. From extravagant performances of local drag queens, house parties and simple afternoons on the porch, Linker’s images portray a broad spectrum of people, locations and emotions. Primarily composed with available light “as found” rather than staged, the photographs convey a sense of the communities’ rich social texture and intimate personal engagement
