He is currently completing his MFA in photography at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi and will be graduating in Spring of 2019.
My work consists of identifying subtle implications of sexuality in archival images, challenging the masculinity of the subjects, and redirecting the original content in order to allow Queer tensions to arise and linger. Aiming to challenge existing binaries by celebrating deviance and otherness, I recreate a narrative of the past using isolation, negative space, distortion and disfigurement.
