Arturo Torres was born in the City of San Luis Potosí in Central Mexico and studied at the Universidad de San Luis Potosi where he received a degree in Agricultural Engineering. In 1988 he emigrated to the United States, making Seattle his “second home.”

His increasing interest in photography and his fascination with architecture inspired him to travel to Europe and Latin America. Torres’ artistic focus is mainly doorways and windows, which speak to him of the lives beyond them. The colors he seeks in his photos are vibrant and full of contrast.

These photographs were captured locally and in his travels to different countries, including Spain, Greece, Italy, and Mexico. Torres explains, “In these images, I want to show how nature and architecture are harmoniously integrated to create visual beauty.” Some of these images were captured with an analog camera and other digitally.
