Xavier Cuevas is a Detroit poet and photographer most commonly known as barelyhispanic. Despite the pun, his work permanently resides on the intersection between his Latinx heritage and his Detroit upbringing.
After years of open mics and slam competitions, Xavier has developed a poetic styling that is as fast-paced and witty as it is slow and reflective. Similarly, his photography can range from loud and expressive to classic and reserved, seeming to morph depending on what the subject or moment requires.
As Media Director, Xavier manages all photo and video documentation. He shot all but a few of the photos on the Creative Relation website.
