Martine Gutierrez wishes for a world full of diversity without prejudice and exclusion. In the photo series Demons, Gutierrez poses as a fantasy version of an Aztec deity. In the images, she conveys her own fluid identity, which rejects distinct and categorical classifications, whether regarding gender or ethnicity. The images were created for “Indigenous Woman,” a 146-page art publication in the style of a glossy magazine.

*1989 in Berkeley/US, lives and works in Brooklyn
