ARTIST: Local Photographer Victor Martino
As a passionate visual storyteller, I believe that a single photograph has the power to convey emotions, share stories, and create mementos for a lifetime. I am a street photographer with a deep love for the art of photography. I always aim to capture the unscripted and raw essence of the frame and let the light do the magic.
Puerto Rico 1971 – My sister and her husband opened a photography studio called BelMar Foto. My dad used to take me there when I was very young. I grabbed and old camera from one of their cabinets I look through the viewfinder and I was mesmerized. It reminded of my favorite toy the viewmaster that was when my love for photography began. In 2002 I purchased my first Leica the Digilux 1 Leica has become my tool of choice to capture my images and the best companion. I believe shooting with a Leica is a unique and individual experience. It captures the power of natural light and the authenticity it brings to every photograph. Each image I create is a carefully crafted reflecting not just what I see, but how I feel about the world around me.
