Based in Chicago's Southside, Miguel focuses on several aspects of identity and experience working within the frameworks of urban youth, latinidad, and queerness. In Miguel's fashion work, he is interested in the concept of "interaction," often engaging with nuanced, yet easily recognizable human relationships and objects. He also strives to redefine the "individual" within the contexts of interaction by addressing his own identity and how it is impacted by memory, trauma, and hegemonic structure, all determined in his ethos as a queer chicano in Chicago's disenfranchised communities. For Miguel, photographing becomes a means for understanding and healing, inherently bringing forth what it means for him to be himself.
