Nadine (Dean) Hutton is known as a photojournalist and a practicing photographer and performance artist. Nadine’s work is concerned with social, political and gender related issues. She was the Chief photographer at the Mail & Guardian and has won several awards during 15 years as a photojournalist. Nadine Hutton menacingly documents the places she occupies, be it the city as a physical, social and political space as well as exploring queer visual culture in South Africa and locating it within the global narrative by collaborating with queer artists who are also identifying, exploring and creating their ‘bodies of work’ in transition. The word ‘queer’ has been, and is still, used mostly in a pejorative manner. The artist is interested in how reclaiming and empowering the word has contributed to the shift in agency of the group, as if somehow calling yourself queer is a statement of intent. It is undoubtedly a statement of intent for Nadine. Identifying as queer somehow allows you to re-harness the power that has been used against you, allows you to reposition yourself in relation to that power, thereby strengthening your potential to be yourself. The role that power plays in this concept of individuation necessarily places reclamations and creations of queer identities in flux in the social world. As a social being, Nadine’s work has always – and perhaps always will – explored stories of many other liminal communities. The trajectory of Hutton’s queer work is deeply personal, as she explores liminality not from outside, but from the inside, from a space of deep intimacy in relation to queer identity, individuals and communities, making this work much more collaborative and co-creative.
