Antonio D. Gonzalez

  • Street Photographer
  • Los Angeles, CA

Antonio's love and passion for photography grew in his junior year of high school, in late 2012. Learning about photographers like Mary Ellen Mark and Diane Arbus led to his intrigue for this type of art. Capturing special moments with a camera seemed like an amazing art form to him.

As his fascination for this type of art arose, the two artists who immediately became his greatest influences are American street photographer Vivian Maier and Mexican cinematographer Gabriel Figueroa. Their unique sense of lighting and contrast captivated his interest, as their work is fairly uncommon than other photographers of their time.

Born in a place full of diverse heritage and culture, Los Angeles has been the city where he creates most of his work. From portraits that tell a story to landscapes that display history, he captures a little bit of everything, emphasizing more on street photography.

Antonio's work is currently displayed permanently in the CSULA Library, and has been featured in VoyageLA Magazine, CSULA Magazine, Los Angeles Times Framework, ABC 7 News, NBC 4 News, CBS News, and has been appreciated by many people, including CNN journalist Lisa Ling, chef Gordon Ramsay, actress Kate Del Castillo, actress Angela Kinsey, actress Octavia Spencer, among others.

Antonio has collaborated with singer-songwriter Julieta Venegas, YouTuber Ryan Bergara, singer Marisoul Hernandez from La Santa Cecilia, singer Adrian Galvin from Yoke Lore, among others.

He is currently pursuing his education, along with photography as his main hobby.
