About

Photographer Joseph Llanes was raised by
his father and stepmother as one of
eight children growing up in Mexico,
Llanes turned stray dogs and abandoned
homes into a child’s dream playground. This
ability to see beyond the surface of
objects would carry into his later work as
abandoned locations and the periphery
surrounding them would become beautiful
backdrops for classic portraiture.
Llanes’ work ultimately seems to revolve
around themes of discovery, exploration
and an existential desire to create correlation
through the lens of a camera.
Llanes graduated with honors from
Art Center College of Design
with a BFA in Photography.
As a Student he was awarded the prestigious
APA Best of Show Award and the Fuji Scholarship.
Since then he has won awards for PDN and C.A.
Joseph was Communication Arts Fresh Photographer
in the 2008 Design Annual.
