Dante Rionda // completd.
Dante Rionda is a photographer born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. He quickly turned his interest for photography into a passion, prioritizing capturing intimate moments and having creative autonomy. He finds inspiration in a variety of environments, people, and subjects; it is through his traveling that this diversity is enabled. Dante also shoots film on both 35mm and medium format, appreciating the patience that film requires. Some of his greatest influences are Gordon Parks, Can Dagarslani, and Andre Wagner.
Photography has transcended passion and is now a profession for Dante. In early 2018, he began giving individual photography lessons to novice photographers, in hopes that he can spread his enthusiasm for art and expression to others.
In July 2018, Dantes work will be featured in a gallery for the first time, hopefully setting a precedent for displaying his photos in the future.
