He can turn a road into mathematics and a shiny street into a story. Put a camera in his hand and Newark resident Paciano Triunfo can do anything.
Triunfo is currently a featured artist of &THEM Collective – a group of art curators based out of Union City –and numerous prints of his work are displayed and being sold out of a San Francisco hotel.
The 37-year-old’s love for photography is one that surfaced at an early age.
As a son of a Navy man, Triunfo, who was born in San Diego, would move around a lot, but whenever his father would return from a deployment, he would bring back cameras from overseas.
And from then on, Triunfo was hooked.
He joined the photography team for his schools’ yearbooks in junior high and high school and now works as a freelancer. (Editor’s note: Triunfo is also a for Patch.)
He spends most of his time as a freelance lighting technician for film, video and television – but he also makes time to capture moments in every day life that are often discounted.
“I'm often inspired by little details that surround us. I like to capture unique points of view of moments in time that we often overlook,” Triunfo said.
Approximately 26 prints of Triunfo’s work is on sale at the Hotel des Arts in San Francisco, ranging from $175 to $250. See his photos entitled "Street Geometry" and "Crossing" above.
Most of the photographs on sale feature images captured throughout the streets of San Francisco, including Chinatown and its neighboring areas, Triunfo said. And while supplies last, visitors to the hotel can receive free limited edition post cards.
Triunfo’s work will be displayed and available for sale at the hotel located at 447 Bush Street in San Franciso through June. See more of his photography at www.paciano.tumblr.com. Click here to learn more about &THEM Collective.
