As viewers enter the space, they will embark on a journey, traversing experiences and emotions. The exhibition will showcase large-scale, floor-to-ceiling prints, allowing an intimate yet colossal connection with every subject. INDUSTRY One invites all art enthusiasts and culture connoisseurs to immerse themselves in a world that celebrates the vast spectrum of humanity and beauty.
Dorian Ulises López Macías, with his boundless creative vision, transforms the gallery space into a vehicle for those often underrepresented in the confines of the conventional beauty industry. Through his artistry, Macías seeks to honor the core of every unique soul captured, unearthing their inherent beauty while paying homage to the diverse world of Mexico and its vibrant people. His photography style merges conceptual fashion shoots with raw street portraits, creating a distinctive aesthetic that is undeniably human. Dorian’s work courageously features underrepresented and marginalized subjects, including dark-skinned Indigenous, Brown, and Black individuals living in Mexico. From redefining male beauty standards to showcasing the strength of Latina women, Dorian fearlessly challenges conventions in his creative practice.
Currently residing and working in Mexico City, Macías holds a BFA from La Universidad Autónoma de Aguascalientes, México. His unique perspective and unwavering dedication to capturing the essence of humanity have propelled him to the forefront of contemporary photography.
