GAY TIMES speaks to Jody Evans about their “messy, playful and sexy” practice and documenting queer folks at work. ALL IMAGES BY JODY EVANS It’s easy to have romantic ideas about the lives of artists – but the reality is always far from the dream.

For every gallery exhibition, major campaign and theatre opening night, there are countless more hours spent toiling away in poorly insulated studios or flitting between odd jobs in order to make ends meet.

It’s less about glamour or artistic calling and much more about finding ways to prolong burning the candle at both ends before an inevitable burnout.

All of this is factors into Cornish photographer and artist Jody Evans’s latest photobook, Blood Sweat and Tears. A mix of artist pursuits, side hustles, day jobs and vocations, the documentary project encompasses a mix of portraits profiling 20 queer folks in their workplaces, studios and homes.
