About the Artists:

Rahm Carrington is a self-taught photographer from San Antonio, TX. Carrington graduated from Southern Methodist University and currently resides in Austin, Texas. His career began as a videographer in the music industry. Shortly thereafter he inherited his father’s 1980’s 35mm camera and has been shooting film and using analog processes since. With a documentary approach, Carrington’s subject matter ranges from South Texas cowboys to globally touring musicians.

 

Born in Matamoros, Mexico, Carlos Limas is a multidisciplinary artist working in painting, video, installation, photography, and design. He has exhibited nationally and internationally throughout México, Belgium, Slovakia, Italy, France, China, and Bolivia. Limas completed his bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design from the Instituto Profesional de Arte y Diseño in Monterrey, Mexico, and a second bachelor’s degree in Studio Art by l’Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts de Bruxelles in Belgium. He holds an MFA from the University of Texas at Rio Grande Valley.

 

Joel Salcido grew up along the U.S. and Mexican border immersed in a dual cultural reality. As a staff photographer at the El Paso Times he documented the Tarahumara Indigenous tribe of Mexico, covered the 1985 Mexico City earthquake, and traveled extensively in Latin America for USA Today. In 1991 he resigned as Photo Editor of the El Paso Times to pursue a freelance and fine art career. His work can be found nationally and internationally in a variety of public and private collections.

 

Tito West is a documentary filmmaker and photographer based in south Texas. Tito West was born in 1985, a seventh-generation Texan. Raised across the brush country and the coastal islands south of San Antonio, he followed a fascination with the natural world to university studies in geology, then a decade of conservation work in rural Africa, always carrying a camera. He now makes his home in south Texas again where he continues to practice his craft, working with elements of photography, design, and cinematography.
