We met Jorge through Raíces Culturales Latinoamericanas. They had a number of his photographs on display and, upon seeing them, we knew we had to get in touch with him. Jorge wound up bringing his work to the open call in Philadelphia. Speaking about his work, Jorge explained, “I document visual moments of humanity, particularly of people whose lives would otherwise be bypassed by art and history. I study people.” The resulting photos are intimate scenes of everyday life made timeless by Jorge’s black and white images.
