Public Matter

“There is a place, 


for you, for they, for us. 


let's talk,


let's call,


let's rise.

Today we are one. 


Let's talk.”


“Public Matter”

These unedited images are a representation of some aspects of human behavior and social injustice. I use different lighting techniques to isolate and abstract bodies as metaphors of mental health status and issues present nowadays. Some of which are fed by my experiences as a camp queer person raised in a catholic and oppressive environment. 

As a part of a societal and digital age that’s addicted to validation, success, fame and money, I see myself and my LGBTQ+ community falling into a cycle of drugs, sex and social media technology, in an attempt to fill up the emptiness, loneliness and frustrations many of us experience.
