Miguel is an artist native to Chicago’s southside. With perspectives on urban youth, Latindad, and environmental justice, notions of memory, trauma, and decoloniality are of valuable consideration for Miguel. His work in conceptual photography often includes the depictions of Latinx migrant narratives, Chicanx practices, mental illness, and heritage. To do so, he employs methods of portraiture, documentation, and contemporary archive, using imagery to address the dynamism of the Latinx/Xicanx experience. In producing these images, Miguel wishes to variegate the perception of Latinx communities and use his practice as a means for collective an and personal healing.
