Caelum Gay is an artist who works primarily in photography and video. He is interested in introspective work that often exudes vulnerability. The subjects that Caelum has addressed in his works have included, mental illness, addiction, and most recently his racism. This video, An Open Letter to My Younger Self, explores his journey through racism and how he has landed in his commitment to anti-racist values. Caelum’s work is largely based on personal experience regarding the subject matter he’s focusing on. This is especially true for this thesis video which is based solely on personal experiences, growth, and understanding. Caelum is looking forward to continuing his exploration of video as his main creative outlet. In the future, Caelum hopes to collaborate with more filmmakers and communities to create meaningful entry points for dialogues that are difficult to talk about.
