Photographing Artist and Activist Wolfgang Busch at The A-List Awards 2021

Photographing the award-winning Art from the Heart owner, filmmaker, and LGBTQ+ activist Wolfgang Busch at The A-List award ceremony in Long Island, NY

When award-winning activist and filmmaker Wolfgang Busch asked if I wanted to photograph him at this year’s A-List Award ceremony in Long Island, NY, I wholeheartedly said “Yes!” I’ve always enjoyed interviewing and photographing him, and also learned from him over the years. So, yes, I couldn’t wait to get together again. Plus, the award ceremony took place on November 4, Obama’s Election Day, so I took that as a very good sign.

The first time I interviewed Busch was in 2006, I believe. He talked to me about his award-winning documentary, How Do I Look. Over the years, he’s also shared stories about the ballroom community, the art of flagging (A Flow Affair) as well as LGBTQ+ and HIV and AIDS activism. A few years ago, Busch was so kind to ask me to work beside him, as a photographer, as he was filming his Rockumentary project (a documentary about rock music history) project.

And speaking of awards, Wolfgang Busch has won plenty, including the Keep the Dream Alive Humanitarian Award in 2015. Read more about it in A&U Magazine.

For now, here are a few images from this year’s A-List award ceremony:

Happy Photographing!
