Back to the Lab presents: Artist Talk with Jorge Garcia
Monday, June 3, 2019 at 7 PM – 8:30 PM
Jorge Garcia (born Miami, 1984) is a NYC-based freelance photographer. He spends most of his time wandering sidewalks looking for interesting, spontaneous moments. He always shoots candidly and rarely speaks to the people he captures. Influences include Gary Winogrand, Matt Stuart, Gus Powell, Aaron Berger, and Andrei Wagner. Clients include Vice, Konbini, AirBnb. and Next Level UK.
In 2015, he founded the NYC Street Photography Collective (NYC-SPC) as a way for local street photographers to meet and share their thoughts on the genre as an alternative to web-based communities. The goal was to establish a local community for street photographers to exchange ideas, experiences, photographs, while promoting the art of shooting street.
Jorge has organized and curated several shows in NYC as well as designed, edited, and published a variety of magazines and books.
Back to the Lab is a community driven organization for photographers seeking to hone their skills and craft their vision.
