Carlos A. Luna (@AbsentInOsaka) is a 24-year-old photographer and video-maker residing in San Ysidro. His practice involves photography, digital video, sketching, and sculpture, and strives to provide a surreal experience to the viewer. Mainly, the works aim to make connections between melodies and abstract visuals to create a feeling that cannot be simply put into words. Furthermore, his works aim to create an archive of the passing moments in time, to capture them and elongate them.
