American-born Andrew Mroczek and Peru native Juan Jose Barboza-Gubo started their collaboration in 2013 with a project called Virgenes de la Puerta (Virgins of the Door). This photography series is inspired by Spanish colonial painting that reimagines transgender women as historical and religious icons. Canon is a series of portraits showing LGBTQ Peruvians who identify with their country’s rich religious heritage. The artists reference the religious “canon” law, often targets and excludes LGBTQ voices and by that, expose us, viewers, to a different type of reality that exist far away from the mainstream western eyes.
