Since 2005, Samantha Box has dedicated herself to documenting New York City’s community of homeless lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) youth.

Her on-going project, INVISIBLE, has been recognized by the Anthropographia Award for Photography and Human Rights, EN FOCO, and the New York Foundation for the Arts. It has been widely exhibited, most notably, in 2010 at The Sanctuary for Independent Media in Troy, NY, and in 2011 as part of the Open Society Institute’s “Moving Walls #18” exhibition. INVISIBLE is fiscally sponsored by the Blue Earth Alliance; images from this project are part of EN FOCO’s permanent collection.

INVISIBLE has been featured on The Raw File, 100eyes Magazine, and on TIME magazine’s LightBox blog.

Samantha was born in Kingston, Jamaica, was raised in Edison, New Jersey and is now based in Brooklyn, New York.
