Ussi'n is a queer photographer based in Paris.
Through his work he documents the queer community within the African diaspora. Aware that in many African countries homosexuality is considered illegal and unnatural, Ussi'n's work depicts a hidden and often misunderstood facet of sexuality in African communities.
His ongoing photo project "If We Were Allowed," seeks to capture what in the minds of the majority is considered abnormal, "normal". Using photography as a medium, Ussi'n invites himself into the intimacy of same-sex couples, in order to portray love in a way that society has never exposed it, while celebrating queer culture in the African diaspora.
