About Me

Juan Carlos Herrera is a Visual Artist born in Venezuela  living in Chicago.He received a degree in literature from Venezuela’s Central University, as well as my Master’s degree in Spanish literature from The University of Iowa. Currently Juan is working on an MA in Visual and Critical Studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), with a research of fashion photography. He is the Photo Editor of the SAIC's newspaper Fnewsmagazine. 

Artist Statement:
My academic and artistic practice is related to fashion photography, specifically regarding the notion of identity; in terms of gender, erotic and cultural identity. I consider fashion a cultural text -as in literature. An in-between space where textual and visual narratives intertwine while in the space of marketing and commerce. You can say that my passion for reading and writing transformed into another creative desire; photography.

My research continues to be about the fashion industry, so I like to meeting people from different aspects of the fashion world. I am interested in collaboration with models, hairdressers, fashion designers and fashion photographers from Latin-America and the USA.

I enjoy working with talented outgoing people who are incredibly committed to evolving their skill-set. A touch of crazy never hurst either.

Please contact me if you are interested in rates and availability.


I have just a few conditions for working with me:

-Signing a release contract is required.

-I usually do not require nudity in my photos, nor do the publications in which I publish, but as some of my photos are for fine art projects I prefer working with models that don't have no nudity rules. 

-No inhibitions. We are professionals, and part of the creative process is to open up to one another to be able to create a great image. 

-For fine art work, sometimes I use film, which means models do not get a photos at the end of the week.  Two weeks  is more likely.

Among the themes that I explore in photography, is the notion of transsexuality, cultural identity, or the limits between commercial and fine art. I am interested in erotic and artistic photography, visually exploring different forms of sexual/erotic expression.Currently I am working on the subject of BDSM culture and how it can be represented in an honest and beautiful way in commercial magazines.

I rarely use photoshop or localized photo manipulation. I work to create a real visual moment, and capture it in a click.
