Sevin grew up in California between the ocean and the desert. The contrast of those two landscapes has always taken shape within them, constructing a duality in their gender expression and art forms. Sevin has had an array of exhibitions in Oakland, CA and Portland, OR.
As someone who didn’t choose the path of institutional education, they thrusted themself into the world as an apprentice of life, using their personal experiences to fuel their photography. While 35mm film is their main passion, Sevin also explores set design, creative directing, fashion, music, film, painting and writing.
They seek to investigate the human condition with uncorrupted preconceived notions and awe. By building candid relationships with beings within subcultures they are drawn to, the opportunity to capture raw and vulnerable moments and expressions presents itself.
They strive to create a safe and experimental container for my family of brown, queer, trans and truth seeking folx to playfully explore themselves, allow their bodies and faces to take shapes they are unfamiliar with, heal, showcase their passions, move through traumas, and open themselves up to the flowing moment in time.
