Lover of my family and friends, food, baseball, cold beer, film and the smell of fixer, cause, you know, I'm weird that way.
Still looking for my own statement as an artist. Mostly advocate to recording pieces of life into real pieces of something. Something with weight, thickness, matter and, in spite of its weightlessnes, something with soul.
I hope it's good enough.

Do you have any rituals of your own? Is there a season-change dance? howling into the wind just for the sake of it? how about a good old birthday cake? It doesn't matter. A celebration is an expression of individuality that deserves to be immortalized by any means possible... film preferrably :)
A small review of a stock I had given up on. Never doubt the power of processing your own film!
Our March 2016 featured artist of the month is Efraín Bojórquez from Monterrey, Mexico.
When I first started doing film photography, one of the first “experimental” techniques that caught my eye was multiple exposure. Not for making a composite as much as for overlaying two different, complementary subjects. It takes just a quick search on Flickr to realize the possibilities are endless.
For many of us, thinking about summer goes along with thinking about vacations, about traveling. Maybe this comes from when we were kids and waited the whole year for the long family road trips to see grandpas. At least I know that's where my summer addiction comes from.
However, now my addiction also gathers its strength from somewhere else: beautiful, golden light; rich colors and contrast everywhere; harsh light; no rain for weeks in a row. In other words, summer time equals photo time.
