Jose Espaillat is a photographer currently living in New York City who specializes in portraiture, editorial, and commercial. He has the versatile ability to take a clean portrait, but also fuse beauty and fantasy to bring any editorial to life. His work has been featured in various print publications.
As a child born in the Dominican Republic, Espaillat always had a passion for photography. He would spend much of his time capturing photos of his peers and surroundings. Yet, it was his move in 2012 to New York City that inspired him to stop studying medicine and pursue his love. The city’s atmosphere of endless possibilities mixed with his artistic soul led him to enrol at the School of Visual Arts for a BFA in Photography where he graduated in 2018.
SOURCE OF INSPIRATION
Nature, Sci-Fi Movies, and futuristic fashion.
