Ricky Marin is a Venezuelan-American artist based in Houston and using photography as a primary medium. His work is a form of meditation on people, places and time, to highlight the beauty he sees in the mundane.
His approach is a cross between social documentary and street photography. Using light, shadows and graphics elements found in our everyday life but often overlooked. His work is influenced heavily by music, films, paintings, books, travel experiences and art in general.
My work revolves around street photography, and my process is based mainly on acute observation; very free-flowing and spontaneous. When I travel, I walk around looking for people or scenes that I find interesting. I photograph things that appeal to me on a subconscious level. Sometimes street photography requires for you to act quickly; most of the time it is my eye and my brain that trip the shutter without my conscious mind realizing why until much later.
