Through a series of naturally lit medium format portraits, Las Otras is a collaboration meant to show the diversity and solidarity of Queer Latin@s. Casual one-on-one portrait sessions in a neutral unadorned environment (the photographer's living room) creates a visual thread and equal platform, eliminating the distraction of the private sphere, so what remains is the unique self. Each Latin@ provides personal thoughts and anecdotes about their experiences and struggles that in both the Latino/a culture and the LGBTQ community. By (re)imaging an often disregarded group through collaborative image and text, Las Otras offer insight to (re)think and (re)visualize the Queer Latin@ identity.
