Oscar Avellaneda-Cruz is a contemporary photographer and zine publisher based in Anchorage, Alaska.

His personal work explores themes of identity and social constructs of contradictory semblance. As an artist, he’s fascinated with cultural practices and their role in shaping future societies.

Oscar is a co-founder of Akela Collective, a private gallery and creative agency, that partners with emerging artists to curate and co-design social experiences & exhibitions.

He was born in Bogota, Colombia as Oscar Avellaneda Celis Sanchez Moreno; and immigrated to Alaska at the age of three. He's a passionate father, avid cyclist and a swimmer.

Oscar can be found curiously wandering through rabbit holes on the web as okiave.
