CEDRIC ANGELES / Working between New Orleans and New York, Photographer and Director Cedric Angeles’ distinct imagery is simultaneously joyful and moving. Beginning his commercial career as a travel photographer, he has since ventured into portraits, food, lifestyle and video with work driven with natural light and movement. A graduate of Art Center College of Design, Photo District News named him one of 30 New and Emerging Photographers to watch. His personal project focuses on the disappearance of traditions and culture, photographing places with the goal of understanding how other people live. He approaches photography and filmmaking with an interest in narrative and the spirit of a documentarian.
He is currently directing his feature documentary debut, CHINGONA, a story about the lives of three female boxers in different stages of their careers in Mexico City.
