Through a combination of conceptual portraiture and traditional documentary, Morganne Boulden provides an in-depth and tender perspective on the overlooked and idiosyncratic traits of American life.
Originally from Philadelphia, Morganne lived back and forth between New Jersey and Pennsylvania the majority of her life until moving to New York in 2017. There, she got heavily involved in the Queer community and began documenting the excursions of her and her friends via a small point-and-shoot 35mm camera. This type of intimate documentation of unique individuals and her relationship to them fueled her photographic passion.
From 2019-2022, Morganne traveled across rural America with friends via road trip documenting their intimate communities & familial dynamics. This project became known as When Flies Sit Still, a tender collection of portraits displaying non- traditional Americans and Queer presenting individuals situated in the Midwest & South. Earnest portraiture accompanied with documentation of precious moments throughout her travels, this project is not only an exploration into peculiar American life, but a direct reflection of her closest friendships and the belongingness she found through these families.
This project was displayed at the Kellen Gallery on 5th Avenue, NYC from April 25th- May 7th, 2022.
Morganne worked under photographers such as Cass Bird and has work featured in various publications including King Kong Magazine, Paper Magazine, Society 6, and The Drunken Canal. She’s shot multiple album covers for artists like Pieri, Girl Dick, and Frog Lady. Her clientele includes Ella Emhoff, Ella Snyder, and Chloe Wise. At this time Morganne has donated approximately $1,000 off print sales to G.L.I.T.S., an organization dedicated to assisting Black Trans women across America.
Morganne is available for freelance. Her wide range of photographic work includes Event photography, Commercial work, Agency Work, Gallery documentation, and Print donation.
