“Growing up in the Bible belt, Ransom Ashley says his life wasn’t always easy. Ransom identifies as LGBTQ+, meaning he was the “other” at his Southern Baptist school in Louisiana, and faced discrimination and bullying because of who he is. But now, Ransom looks back at his youth through the camera lens. A photographer, actor, and cinematographer attending the Parsons The New School for Design in New York City, Ransom told Teen Vogue he now uses his work to explore what identity means to him, particularly given the religious environment he grew up in.”
