Jake Naughton is a Mexico City-based visual artist and journalist making work about queer identity in the present moment. This takes the form of long-term, in-depth projects, like This is How the Heart Beats, about East Africa’s LGBTQ community, Both Sides of the Veil, which showcases a strange limbo for India's queer community, or When We Were Strangers, which explores and deconstructs love through the prism of his own relationship with his partner.

Alongside his artistic practice, he makes commissioned work for editorial and commercial clients alike.

He is interested in upending the ways stories are told and presented, and in service of that he co-founded the storytelling incubator Suno Labs and the creative cooperative Black Box

He loves collaborating, so give him a shout.
