Armando Alvarez

Armando Alvarez is an artist who has been photographing his surroundings for as long as he can remember. His photographs have been described as greedy, sarcastic, and somewhat the equivalent of a cross between Duke Ellington and Bad Brains. He makes no apologies for these descriptions. He prefers the slow, arduous process of shooting on “outdated” medium format film cameras over the immediacy of digital cameras and computer software.

He currently lives and works in South Texas where he spends all his free time with his wife and three beautiful children.

Cars

I don’t even like cars especially, but I can relate to these two photographic projekts about them. The first one is a series “Vector Portraits” (1989-1997) by Andrew Bush, who took shots of people driving in their cars by 50 to 75 mph around Los Angeles. Maybe the relation of the owners to their vehicles is so catching.
