Antonio Pulgarin is a documentary fine art photographer based in Brooklyn, New York. His photographs are informed by his distinct connections to both American and Latino culture. His environmental portraits and still lifes focus on the lives of subjects from communities often overlooked by mainstream media. Pulgarin's choices photographically are always deeply personal. He uses photographs to ask questions, rather than to attempt to supply answers. Ultimately his work leaves his audience to experience their own sense of discovery and loss as they view his images. Overall, his photographs are a celebration of his subjects and culture.
Pulgarin trained at the School of Visual Arts. His work has been shown in the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, Brooklyn Museum, Daniel Cooney Fine Art Gallery, The Margulies Collection at the Warehouse, and the Visual Arts Gallery. His photographs have received honors from the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, YoungArts, AI-AP Latin American Fotografia, American Photography, and PDN Photo Annual.
