Guillermo Gómez Peña & RJ Muna: The Lowrider Christ-Unspeakable Creature-La Llorona del Cabaret Babylon-Aztlán Triptych Julio Pantoja

The Lowrider Christ-Unspeakable Creature-La Llorona del Cabaret Babylon-Aztlán Triptych

It wasn’t until 2004 that I began to think of performance photography as a product in itself. Since then, I have developed 8 portfolios strictly for the camera. This triptych is part of my 9th portfolio developed in collaboration with photographer RJ Muna. This is the first time a Canadian audience will get to see this piece. —GGP
