- Long A person poses dramatically balanced on one arm, limbs spread in various directions–each adorned with a cowboy boot. One booted arm points towards us and both legs splay out to touch the walls of the nearby corner. The person faces away from you, back flexing from the contortion of their pose. The lighting of the photograph is dramatic and dream-like, with one light source casting red shadows and an orange glow, while another light casts green shadows. The figure's shadow spreads across the wall revealing the outline of male genitals.

- Long A person dressed as a plant squats in a large planter and peeks out from under a hood covered in shiny green cut-out leaves.They wear khaki pants and a grey sweatshirt, which is adorned with the same type of leaves as the hood. Their intense, unsmiling gaze meets yours as they grasp the edges of the tall planter. The planter and person are in a white, garage-like space.
