Born in Carolina, Puerto Rico, and also being of Dominican descent, Emmanuel Hernandez has been exposed to different creative endeavors. He was exposed to music at age 11, listening to Bachata music and learning how to play guitar by ear. Later, he formed an independent record label to help other artists. Along the way, he purchased an analog synth which led him to begin composing music. His curiosity for photography peaked with the mediative nature of landscape and cityscape photography.
“Art is my way of life. It is on my mind and soul day and night. It has helped me slow time down and appreciate my surroundings and at the same time create new ones.”
Hernandez currently lives in Manchester, NH and studied at the Berklee College of Music. He is inspired by the works of Ara Güler, Manuel Garcia, Susumu Yokota, and Stanley Kubrick. His work has been recognized by both the Monochrome and ND Awards for excellence in photography.
