LOUIE FROM THE BLOCK

a few words


Luis Roberto Burgos is a Black, Queer, Jewish, Neurodiverse Earthling based on Lenape Land, colonially known as New York City. 

Born in the Lower East Side of Manhattan and raised throughout these boroughs, Luis lived in Los Angeles from 2013 to 2018. 

He learned how to question at Phillips Exeter Academy and how not to question at Bard College. 

His photography is often based in literature while his writing is visual and sensory.

In 2022, NY Jewish Week named him one of the "36 to Watch." (Formerly 36 under 36)

That same year, he debuted his first photobook, Moses of the City, which received a stellar review from The Forward.
