Edu Monterio’s Gross Junk Portraits

Edu Monteiro is a photographer and visual artist whose work is focused on researching the relationship between photography and performance. His portraits possess an air of theatricality and feel like a performance art piece. Intended to shock and invoke strong reactions in the viewer, they work because Monteiro doesn’t hold anything back. Disgusting and marvellous at the same time.
