is a photographer and visual artist,

Born in Mexico and raised in Spain, Colombian photographer Camila Falquez creates photographs that harness the traditions of fashion and portrait photography to honor a contemporary spectrum of social and gender diversity.

Silk Spacers Detail

“What if beauty and power can exist on pedestals that we have never seen before? Can we present a vision of freedom – that regardless if we only know it as a vision – we can now live by and embody? It’s through drag, through dance, through marching in the streets and through community organizing that we enter The Vortex - as activist Qween Jean calls it - and we can talk about all that is sacred, profound and necessary. As an old Rumba tells us, ‘Si vamos a hablar, hablemos profundo’ - ‘if we are going to talk, let's talk profoundly.’ The constellation of divine beings represented in this work summon undeniable realities and future possibilities that can no longer be ignored, oppressed or erased. This is an opportunity to question where power really lies and to celebrate the grace and beauty that we carry. These are the Gods that Walk Amongst Us.”

Gods that Walk Among Us includes 28 photographs shot in the last four years between Cuba, New York, Puerto Rico and Spain. The works are a combination of personal and commissioned work, depicting a range of activists, friends, muses and performers with whom Falquez has developed long standing relationships.

Each time Falquez’s subjects step in front of her camera, a transformation occurs. Their luminosity is blinding and the space fills with their profound power. Guided by the sounds of Salsa, Rumba and Flamenco, Falquez’s shoots are an artistic journey embarked on with her subjects. Together, they climb mountains in order to instill change.

Opening Night

“It is time for us to create the statues of our future that will fill the halls of the museums and the city squares. It is through the creation of these scenarios over and over again that our world is transformed and becomes another. These photographs manifest the impossible.”-Camila Falquez
