Néstor Pérez-Molière

Néstor Pérez-Molière was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and currently resides in The Bronx. His practice takes place mainly in the realm of photography, but also incorporates performance, drawing, video, installation, and intaglio techniques. All of these are used in unison as he turns his camera on himself and delves into self-portraiture, exploring his relationship with his body, body image ideals, and food relationships as subject matter.

Nestor has an MFA from Hunter College and holds a BSc in botany. He was part of the Artist in the Marketplace and Creative Capital’s Taller mentorship programs, and was part of The Bronx Museum of the Art’s Fourth Biennial. He has exhibited at the Museo de las Américas, the Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural and Educational Center, Longwood Gallery, and the Liga de Artes de San Juan. He currently teaches digital and darkroom photography at the International Center of Photography and The Point CDC.

Néstor’s Classes

I loved Néstor's class, and in general found that he created a welcoming and supportive course, with lots of great practical advice about our projects. I also appreciated the pace. I find lately that I want to dive deep, and for his class it was helpful to focus on one or two images. And his feedback helped me focus on refining a couple of ideas.

Thanks for a really helpful class! I enjoyed each session — well designed, with the right amount of photo critique and theory — and I feel much more comfortable handling my camera now. You offered great atmosphere in the sessions and provided really useful feedback and practical tips. Crucial for myself: Photography is getting closer and closer to my heart and I'm eager to keep my photography practice going and keep shooting almost daily to improve – and to find my voice as a photographer. Thank you for helping me taking these next steps! Hope we see each other in future classes!
