I am a community member and artist born to Dominican immigrants and raised by many cultures in New York City. Watching and observing people and sceneries change and become beautiful subjects to photograph is how I describe my approach to creating my artwork. It gives me an inexplicable joy to capture pure happiness emitting from people during events or in the streets. . I have been published on various media outlets like: The New York Times, DNAinfo, and Huffington Post. I have also gotten awards for my work from an artist residency to Mexico from 360 XOCHI QUETZAL, a grant from NoMAA for my Observe The Heights project and placed as a finalist in magazine contests like Line Zero. I have created different works that have gained much positive and uplifting commentary from not only familiar people, but strangers from different countries. My most impressive achievement, personally, was my project “Observe The Heights,” a project that involved capturing images at every intersection in the neighborhood of Washington Heights and Inwood in New York City. My challenge was to create a beautiful image at every single street, even if at first glance there seemed to be nothing to capture. The other part of the project was getting community members, my neighbors, to write about their thoughts on their neighborhood on all the frames. After about a year of shooting, printing, putting together and creating websites, I looked at the work and was very happy with the results. www.observetheheights.com. I love traveling, as many humans do, and any opportunity I get, I take. I was not blessed with access to travel much as a kid. When I do travel anywhere, I like to meet the communities, and learn from their lives. I like to share, but I mostly like to take in culture and learn how to love other humans and earth in different ways. In turn I try to show the world in my own way, how amazing an experience may be where ever I am. Through my own eyes I would be able to show people from different parts of the world things they may never get a chance to see. Eventually I would like to become a travel photographer shooting everything from landscapes to weddings.
