Joe Ovelman (b. 1970, West Chester, Pennsylvania) explores sexuality, the subversion of social norms, and marginalized communities in his work. He often invites individuals from the community to contribute, whether appearing anonymously in photographs or through the written word. Ovelman’s recent work is informed by his involvement in restorative justice for youth. His work has been exhibited widely and is in several public collections, such as the the Wadsworth Antheneum Museum of Art, Hartford, CN.
