No particular theme, just pretty images

Before photography I wanted to be a fashion designer. I started a streetwear brand in 2013 that only lasted one collection / capsule / whatever you want to call it. It was named "El Comino" by dad's nickname which is Spanish for "the cumin." My dad is a short man and if you're familiar with the cumin it is a small spice in which the clever people in Mexico decided to call my dad that for his size. I didn't really have a direction in which I wanted to go with the brand, I just wanted to create graphic t-shirts. After realizing that I did not have the capital it takes to have a brand, nor did I have the resources, I decided to stop pouring my money into graphic t-shirts and fell into photography. Fast forward to 2017, I'm back to making graphic t-shirts. After creating "Today's Archives" for A-W Project I realized that I have a love for making physical objects. I was very happy that I was able to create a new platform for my photography through a publication. 

"No particular theme, just pretty images." is simply a new platform for my photography through graphic t-shirts. Being able to go back to what is my gateway drug is awesome. Going through the process of creating a product is incredibly fun to me. I think about every aspect of it, from the logistics to the presentation, I love it all. My idea is to slowly create an entire collection "real life blog feed" little by little by going one t-shirt at a time. The first t-shirt will be for sale via alfredocontreras.bigcartel.com Wednesday, June 14th, 2017.
