Cade’s documentary project delves into the community of male sex workers, exploring the lasting repercussions of male-on-male sexual abuse. A survivor himself, Cade stages his scenes in the cramped quarters of a dive hotel where he and others rehearse and reverse the power dynamics of abuse. Graphic and direct, these black-and-white photographs provide a compassionate yet unflinching portrait of the ways their subjects seek to work through past traumas.
