My name is Aldo Chacon and I am a Mexico City born, Los Angeles based photographer. I have been traveling and living in many different cities for the past 12 years.
I've lived in Europe, the US and Mexico and this has allowed me to understand different cultures and different ways of living. I bumped into photography after working for Disney as a cook in one of the parks. I got interested in documenting the life of people that worked there and our daily lives as employees of this massive empire. After some hard working months I decided it was time to leave and explore different possibilities and I moved to Barcelona, where I began to document the streets and learn the technical aspects of photography.
The streets and my daily captures where my school. I currently live in LA where I work in commercial, sports and documentary projects. I am grateful for every moment I get and every person I meet along my journey, and I hope I can keep doing this for a long time.
