What strikes a chord with the viewer in Jorge Pérez Higuera’s series, The Other Side, is the hauntingly, beautiful simplicity of each piece. Whether it is the lone Stormtrooper sitting with a birthday cake or the crowded movie theater, Higuera’s work is riveting.
By using a culturally ubiquitous character to narrate his photos, Higuera offers the viewer a look at everyday life that highlights the common and the banal. His gender neutral approach challenges the viewers preconceived notions of identity and focuses on what Higuera terms the “galactic working class”.
Higuera’s work has found international attention in a range of publications from Wired Magazine to the The Guardian. Studio SoHy is honored to have the unique opportunity to show Higuera’s No Title as part of the May The Art Be With You: A Tribute To A Galaxy Far, Far Away opening on December 12th. The work will remain on display through the end of January.
