EMMANUEL A. COLON TOLEDO

Artist’s Statement – I like to linger in the past every now and then. I try to recreate the memories that I cherish, just to get a feel for how things were then, and compare them to the now I live in. I take a similar approach in my photography. I like to capture the natural essence of what I’m seeing or living at that particular moment. When I take out my camera, I usually look for the best way to remain unnoticed so my presence does not interfere with the moment. My work attempts to capture the idea of what is happening at the very instant I press the shutter. This allows the viewer to also imagine and jump into the same scene.
