BEDTIME STORIES is an ongoing autobiographical photo series, circa 2017, that started off as a catalyst for coming out of the closet which showcased personal transitions that Raphael Sanchez underwent, and continue to experience. However, the initial research Sanchez conducted led him down a rabbit hole of films and icons that struggled for a community to be recognized as people, resulting in the melancholic realization that their labour never came to fruition in their lifetime.
