Based out of Brooklyn, New York, Aquiles Torres is not just another photographer in the sea of people who love to take photos. With a longtime passion for photography from a young age but not having the income to drive that passion, the moment he was able to purchase his first camera, he jumped at the opportunity. Since then he's been studying the greats of photography as well as his peers, being sure to pay homage without stealing another artist vision but with his own rendition.
Balancing his blue collar profession along with his need to take photos can be difficult but it's a task he takes on full speed. For close to a decade Aquiles has been running the streets with the NYC Department of Sanitation keeping the city clean but also seeing the city from a photographers perspective.
