'Kings & Queens in Their Castles' has been called the most ambitious photo series ever conducted of the LGBTQ experience in the U.S. Over a span of 15 years, Atwood photographed more than 350 subjects at home nationwide, including nearly 100 celebrities.
With individuals from 30 states, Atwood offers a window into the lives and homes of some of America's most intriguing and eccentric personalities. Among those depicted are Meredith Baxter, Alan Cumming, Don Lemon, John Waters, George Takei, Alison Bechdel, Barney Frank, Don Bachardy, Billy Porter, Ari Shapiro, Arthur Tress, Michael Urie, Greg Louganis, Tommy Tune, Jonathan Adler, and Terrence McNally.
Modern day tableaux vivants, the images portray whimsical, intimate moments of daily life that shift between the pictorial and the theatrical. Rich in beauty and clarity, these personal landscapes are both a witness and a celebration.
