Daniel Chek-Shu Housley

With a focus on fashion & documentary photography, my work is often shaped by my own lived experience and explores ideas of identity, sexuality and culture. For me, photography is rooted in the dichotomy between naturalism and artificiality, and I love incorporating elements of both into my work.

Soony and Anta reunited in Lisbon, the city where they first met. As natives of two different countries, these reunions are few and far between, so each second spent together is precious. I wanted to capture the significance of small intimate moments like these, as significance is not only found in large scale movements but also in simple moments of progress.
