Caliente (2021) Starring Chris Cortez, Creative Direction + Photography by Michael Henriquez

 

No te quemas, queers make the world hotter! Chris Cortez is not only a close friend of mine but also a multimedia artist in New York City. This project was inspired by the visuals of Kali Uchis’ Te Pongo Mal (Prendalo) album artwork and sensations Chris felt when he listened to this track. The focus of Caliente is to bring the experience of burning up to life. 

 

I organized inspirations of iconic divas from Lil Kim to Christina Agurleria as well as exploring latinx sexiness within beats of reggaeton – colliding all these elements together with the tempo of Te Pongo Mal (Prendalo) were driving forces for Caliente.
