The first book by one of the most in-demand photographers of our time, Holding Space shares one hundred stunning photographs of queer, inter-racial couples, with first-person text about their relationships in this current time period. After the May 2020 murder of George Floyd, and during the Covid pandemic, photographer Ryan Pfluger set out to capture queer, inter-racial couples across the US. It was (and is) a time of intense upheaval and reckoning and Ryan wanted to capture that in the lives and on the bodies of these friends and strangers. The photographs, and the people in them, can be startling in their vulnerability, playful in their poses, and tender to the core. The interviews produce a range of short, revealing stories about the couples.
