PQs Guy by Seigar.
Nature Guy by Seigar.
This photo-narrative series shows a guy connecting with nature. The sun brings light to the young man and all the environment surrounding him. There is also an intimate feel in the photos reinforced by his clothes. This is my first work with a participant of Mister Canarias Online, a local male beauty contest (@mrcanarion) with an inclusive approach, "for all type of men" is part of their philosophy. I'm interested in exploring new masculinities roles and inclusivity, and this contest is the right channel for it. This is a new path in my photographic work that I'm excited to take.
Seigar is a passionate travel, street, social-documentary, conceptual, and pop visual artist based in Tenerife, Spain. He feels obsessed with the pop culture that he shows in his works. He is a fetishist for reflections, saturated colors, curious finds, and religious icons. He has explored photography, video art, and collage. He also writes for some media. His main inspirations are traveling and people. His aim as an artist is to tell tales with his camera, creating a continuous storyline from his trips, encounters, and experiences. His most ambitious projects so far are his Plastic People, a study on anthropology and sociology that focuses on the humanization of the mannequins he finds in the shop windows all over the world, and his Tales of a City, an ongoing urban photo-narrative project taken in London. He is a philologist and also works as a secondary school teacher. He is a self-taught visual artist, though he has done a two years course in advanced photography and one in cinema and television. He has participated in several exhibitions and his works have been featured in many publications. He has collaborated with different media such as VICE and WAG1. He writes for Dodho, The Cultural, Red Hot Monde, Intra Mag, and Memoir Mixtapes about pop culture. Lately, he has experimented deeply with video forms. His last interest is documenting identity. Recently, he received the Rafael Ramos García International Photography Award.
