iownthesky asked: Do you strictly shoot film or do you do digital as well. It looks like you use film but I could be mistaken. You're really inspiring, I haven't taken any photos in a long time but your work makes me want to get back into it.
I strictly shoot film you are absolutely correct. You can get a really affordable olympus point n shoot to get into the swings slowly but surely.
feltlurked asked: id love to pick up a zine!
where are you from? I was born and raised in Oakland.
where are you right now? Actually, just moved back, and well, it’s nice to be home.
where do you want to be? As far as where I’d like to be, I love my new house. It’s a pretty Victorian with a load of character. Oakland has so much culture and the area i’m in West Oakland is like an industrial playground. Abandoned buildings, some of the best street art the bay area has to offer, and an emerging and up and coming area are just some of the perks of being here.
My work is rich in Latino and queer tones. I’m inspired by everything that surrounds me. Whether it be a mother taking her kids for a stroll, the senorita selling roses in front of the train station, the abandoned buildings that engulf my neighborhood or just a simple jazz standard.
Mi Vida Loca/My Crazy Life
52 Color pages of bay area realness. This is a photographic diary of the past 4 years of my life in chronological order. The zine documents my last years in San Francisco,Gentrification and the current state of Oakland,CA.
