Photographer and Architect Bernardo Medina was born in El Salvador, Central America but has lived in Houston, Texas most of his life. A source of inspiration for his architectural projects, photography allows Medina to “play with the perception of the outside world…it’s structures, forms, colours, illusions, and clichés.”
Medina uses mostly digital photographic equipment from professional SLR’s to simple “point and shoot” digital pocket cameras. His work has been featured in books, magazines and publications around the world. In 2009, Medina won the Grand Prize in National Geographic’s “Ultimate Photo Contest”.
