Artist Bio

Milton Castro is a self-taught photographer who was born and raised in New York City. His love for the arts began in his teens, navigating the city as a young graffiti writer and being immersed in the city’s vibrant 1980s and 1990s underground club and art scene.

Castro honed his skills while working as a photographer’s assistant; learning lighting and darkroom techniques, and working with 35mm, medium format, and vintage Polaroid cameras, which he continues to use in the digital age. Heavily influenced by the city and his circle of friends, Milton’s (Milz) portraits primarily deal with sexuality.

After working in fashion for over a decade as a creative consultant and brand manager, Milz Castro has fallen in love once again with photography. He now lives and works out of his studio in the Bronx.
