Joseph Michael Lopez – Episode 63

“I don’t think I was really ready to break out as a photographer, but I was ready to break out as like my own spirit.” Joseph Michael Lopez is a documentary photographer. His interest in photography started while he was a cinematographer. Joseph is mostly self-taught and his work often involves concerns for social justice which is a character trait he attributes to the life story of his mother who escaped Cuba in 1967. Joseph’s work has appeared on the cover of M, The Magazine for Leica M Photography, The Sunday Review of The New York Times, New York magazine and The New Yorker, among others.
