JL Javier


JL Javier (b. 1995) is an award-winning photographer with experience in photojournalism, portraiture, fashion, and interiors. In his work he explores the idea of images as spaces for humanity, life, and connection — often using minute, intimate details to frame and contextualize the image’s story.


JL Javier examines masculinity with a kind but discerning eye in Tenderness, a series of photographs taken mid-conversation, in varying states of undress.


Four photographers reflect on practice and identity, their processes reshaped with the guidance of a community bonded by images.
