I grew up in Mexico City's largest photo studio. "Oleo Photo" There I started working in the darkroom when I was 7; we did all the photocoloring, by hand, with oil colors for all the other major studios. My father was the famous "Goyito" a friend of Frida and Diego. I started my own theatre company at the age of twelve and I have been acting and directing ever since. I have directed over 70 plays. I create sculptures in marble, alabaster, wood, steel and other materials. I am a printmaker. I have always been a photographer. I am a poet. If you are interested in working with me, on photography or sculpture, or theatre drop me a note. Miguel

Note: I know how to take "normal" studio photos, yet I choose not to, I prefer experimental work.
Solarization: about two thirds into the development of the film, turn a light, or open a door to the darkroom, just for an instant and the silver on the negative rushes and accumulates towards the edges. That is how it should be done.
MM:There are just a few talented photographers, but for the most part people with bigger egos than their telephotos with mediocre work and lack of originality.
Thanks to Tyler and the mods for trying to keep things going and to all the models who inspire our work.
