Launching my new website via Visura
Mar 16, 2017
Delighted to announce the launch of my new website. I am a Colombian photographer, currently living and working in Chicago, Illinois & Paterson, New Jersey. My work explores the personal interior spaces of working people, (in particular the employees of Great Lakes Reload and my family in Paterson, New Jersey) the textures of a working life and the banal indicators of domesticity that shaped his view of the world, both as a first generation immigrant and laborer. In addition to this work, I continue to photograph my family as part of an ongoing project in which I am looking at my relationship with my parents.
