Episode 27: Faustinus - El Subconsciente

"We all are photographers. Everybody will have their own excuses to take photos. But to me just being able to keep shooting I think it is already in my veins, in my mind, in my heart, in my soul."

Photographer Faustinus Deraet learns more about himself every time he clicks the button on his camera, captures an image, and makes a print. These images are windows into his subconscious (subconsciente) which end up revealing something deeper that needs to be expressed. He also uses photography as a journal of his life as he tries to be fully in every moment and find balance. The work he creates is initially only for himself and is for the pure joy of it. The universality of his images are not as much about a specific place but more a kind of language of relationship, reality, and of something deep in the soul.

What a fun and lighthearted conversation. Faustinus is such charming and humorous guy and his images really speak to me. We talk all about how he got started in photography and speak about his work, views on life, and his upcoming solo exhibit at the Dougherty Arts Center.

“Chilango Subconscious is a collection of street photography by Faustinus Deraet taken in Mexico City. Guided by the artist’s subconscious, chance encounters result in candid images that look closely at the urban environment.”
