Hector Nevarez Magaña is a Mexican-American photographer and writer from East Palo Alto, CA. After earning his BA from Bowdoin in 2016, he moved to Portland, where he currently works and resides.
"My photographs and writing deal with themes of romance, remembrance, idealization and vulnerability. I think about the manner in which we tend to exaggerate and attempt to create the most ideal ""picture"", or near-truth to satisfy our memory. I’m obsessed with making sure these people, objects, and scenes from my life will still be there the next day. It’s a way of grounding myself, while also having a chance to fabricate new narratives out of them."
