Born in Chicago, Manolo was raised on the move between the U.S. and Latin America. Growing up in an artistic household, his creative endeavors were encouraged from a young age. Manolo studied photography at The Pasadena Art Center College of Design. Since graduating he has established himself as an in-demand fashion photographer shooting for international publications and brands such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazzar, L’Officiel, Calvin Klein, L’Oreal, Michael Kors, Stuart Weitzman, and AVEDA to name a few. Manolo is revered in the industry for creating images with a subtle but strong elegance, and an ability to capture a quiet romantic sensibility through image-based story-telling. Building on his innate ability to capture the female form with thoughtful elegance, Manolo began using his photographs to inspire abstract illustrations as a way to re-imagine the fluidity of the feminine physique. The result is a series of sophisticated and thoughtful prints that can co-exist as a set, or can be hung individually.
