Additional Details

This photograph was made on assignment for "On Our Backs," the first lesbian erotic magazine in the United States (1984-2006). Cohen's artist statement speaks to both the intimacy and freedom expressed in the composition, as well as the multi-layered challenges faced by queer women looking for family and connections: "The photograph I took of women in a circle holding hands with their feet touching is the connection that holds the love of a conscious family. As a chosen family."
