Javier Gallego Escutia is London-based artist working in photography, film, and (more recently) music. His work is conceptual; rather than documenting the outside world, he focuses on externalizing his inner world. Featured here is a selection of his photography, largely from his “Untitled Portraits” series, which involve surreal depictions of the human body. Defying societal norms in regards to gender and beauty, these figures represent Escutia’s recurring themes: otherness and transformation, beauty beyond normativity, and an expansion in the ways we see others and ourselves.
