Andrés Pérez (Guarenas, Miranda, Venezuela, 1993) is a non-binary photographer, visual artist and teacher. His studies in art and cinema, at the Universidad Central de Venezuela, gave him a sensibility for the image.

In 2019 they migrated to Bogota-Colombia and this trip coincided with the decision to start their photographic career. As a diverse and migrant person, their work focuses

on gender, identity, memory, binary violence and queer bodies, especially in Latin American territory. They address other themes related to the anti-patriarchal narrative and the deconstruction of the heteronormative with the interest of preserving a more diverse memory. As storytellers, they not only have the need to narrate about others, they are also interested in speaking from an intimate and autobiographical place.

 

His photographic languages are portraiture, documentary narratives, fashion and expanded photography. This visual hybrid is the result of the union between his creativity and political interests.

In 2023 the project Dead Family was the winning story of Pride Photo and was recognized in Picture Of the Year Latam in the category "re-signifying archives". They won a Prince Claus Seed Awards in 2023.
