Federico Villalba

As an art photographer favoring street photography, it is not my intention to photograph an image that does not genuinely exist, nor alter it into an illusion that it is not. My photography tends to focus on documenting the reality—dimples and blemishes—that make life along “la frontera” of the United States and Mexico so colorful and unique.

Villalba has participated in exhibitions in the Southwest U.S., and Northern and Central Mexico, and currently at the El Paso Museum of Art in the Desert Triangle Print Carpeta Exhibition now through May 22.
