Erin De Juaregui – Warriors ATC Exhibition

Featured

Warriors is a series of photographic studio portraits where I explore individual diabetics and the physical endeavors that they participate in. The name Warriors derives from the social media hashtag #t1dwarriors when describing a Type 1 Diabetic Athlete. By taking a stylized portrait of each athlete with a red and blue color scheme. While diabetes is an infliction of the pancreas, red symbolizes the fact that the effects are circulated through the vascular system. It is the regular testing of blood glucose levels that helps diabetics manage their condition. While blue was initially chosen for stylistic reasons, it is also the color used in diabetic fundraisers and awareness. In this exhibition, I want to elevate the individual and applaud their achievements while acknowledging the fact that they are diabetics.

My subject is the human form, photographs of conventional beauties are ubiquitous, and as I would not be considered a conventional beauty by western European standards, I look for beauty in all.  I am interested in age because of the impact of sun on the skin, the blemishes of disease and childbirth, scars from accidents, bulging fat, tattoos, and the sag of weight loss. Somehow I look for features that elicit emotions.
