Artist Bio

Edwin J. Torres is a documentary photographer born and raised in The Bronx. He attended Colby College in Maine on a Posse Foundation, full-tuition leadership scholarship and while in attendance majored in American Studies. Since returning to The Bronx, he has fallen in love with the culture and the authenticity of the people from the borough. He currently works as a freelance photojournalist and portrait photographer. His personal documentary work primarily focuses on telling the stories of his own family and other Latino families in The Bronx. The emphasis is to give voice to those who do not have a voice and to advocate for a more in-depth representation of people’s lives.
