Devyn Galindo

"It’s an honor to serve on the host committee with Las Fotos Project. Especially during a year when we need inspiration and to share create energy and spirit more than ever."

Devyn Galindo is a Queer, Chicanx, Two Spirit photographer. Born in Garden Grove, California, but having grown up bouncing from state to state, she feels fearlessly nomadic and continues to travel frequently in her adult life. She would describe herself as honest, impulsive, an adventure seeker, and a risk taker.

We Are Still Here, is her self published debut book documenting Chicanx/Indigenous resistance and the underground movement currently shaping Los Angeles, CA. This project was created over the span of one year and is an ongoing obsession. She felt compelled to leave behind a book that uplifted and empowered the women in her community as well as creating a piece that could inspire other women in the future.

Recently Devyn’s published her latest project, The Van Dykes. Inspired by a caravan of lesbians who called themselves the Van Dykes roaming the US + Mexico in the 1970’s. Her ’78 VW van works as a traveling studio documenting the stories of LGBTQ folks across the country. She hopes to create a queer archive for future generations, practicing activism through art.
