December 2022. B&W 120mm film on Mamiya 645

For my photography class final, we were told to make St. Olaf look not like St. Olaf. I was heavily inspired by Jordan Peele’s “Nope” and I wanted to make my own western movie with Latinx bodies in it. I watched cowboy movies to help me prepare. I asked my friends, Kira and Cris to be the stars of my “movie” and I wouldn’t have done it with anyone else. This was also my first time shooting in medium format and I’m more than happy with the result.

Featured in the St. Olaf Juried Show and the Gage Park Latinx Council's "En El Abismo, Me Encontré" exhibition.
