Chance Nkosi Gomez is a conceptual photographer who has developed a minimalist aesthetic to challenge the audience’s perception of truth and reality by using the human body to express a visual dialogue. Inspired by the current political state of the United States of America, Nkosi emphasizes the significance of his work by challenging the audience to question their own truth and the reality around them. Currently technology, algorithms and media, all take place at the front line of fire in the political arena; Nkosi responds by stating, “It is important now more than ever to question what one has accepted as their own reality.”
As humanity we colonize, we conquer, we defy, we manipulate and indoctrinate, while the animals are living in the most natural state. If we are the truth to this planet, then the birds must be singing lies.Chance Nkosi Gomez
The artist refers to the people he photographs as subjects rather than models because of their unique features and continues to concentrate on the nature of their physical form. Most of his “subjects” are also creatives. Some of his inspirations include Chloe Rosser, Ben Zank and Brooke Didonato who all use human body and clean photographic aesthetic to express their ideas. For one of his concepts titled Hair Reiki Nkosi photographed a piece by Solange Sarria, a Miami-based conceptual artist.
