Jake Naughton is a London-based visual artist and journalist making work about queer identity in the present moment. This takes the form of long-term, in-depth projects, like This is How the Heart Beats, about East Africa’s LGBTQ community, or Here is What I Know About Love, which explores and deconstructs love through the prism of his own relationship with his partner.

He is interested in upending the ways stories are told and presented, and in service of that he co-founded the creative cooperative Black Box and the storytelling incubator Suno Labs

He loves collaborating, so give him a shout.
