Gilbert Artiaga is a self taught photographic artist, who grew up in Los Angeles, California. His fascination with photography began at a very young age when he was given a “Kodak Baby Brownie”, his first camera, in the late fifties. Several hundred photographs later, he progressed to the “Kodak Brownie Hawkeye”. Time and technology led him first to the “Minolta XG-A” and then the Canon AE/2 35mm's and continues with Canon in the digital format. He has a great appreciation for classical photographic techniques, but incorporates new technological applications to expand some of his digital presentations.
