I'm Dese'Rae L. Stage, and I'm a Brooklyn based photographer.

I'm working on a passion project about suicide awareness, called Live Through This. I'm internet famous because I got legally [gay] married, and subsequently legally [gay] divorced. Barf.

I live with my girlfriend and our cobbled together menagerie of pets. I'm consistently drawn to good books, good coffee, text as visual art, and the long, drawn-out process of turning my own body into a quietly inked pictorial memoir.

The MHOW show was 132 (science!) times better than the Bowery show. Such an incredible crowd. So happy I got to witness it, so sad it’s over. @verucasaltband  (at Music Hall of Williamsburg)
