Guadalupe Custom Strings



A few weeks ago I was able to spend a few hours shooting at Guadalupe Custom Strings in Los Angeles. The four men who run the business are Jacob Hernandez (top left), Gabriel Tenorio (top right) Luis Vasquez (bottom left) and José Becerra (bottom right).

Roxana Vasquez

Roxana Vasquez is a young aspiring photojournalist currently finishing up her degree in journalism at the University of Arizona School of Journalism. She worked for the college newspaper the Arizona Daily Wildcat for three years, interned at the Tucson Citizen and the Arizona Daily Star in Tucson, AZ. Roxana also participated in the New York Times Journalism Institute in January 2008 and the Unity: Journalist of Color student project in Chicago in July 2008.

Roxana started photographing when she was 16 years old. It's been one of her passions to tell stories of her own and other's cultures through her photographs.

Humberto and Mercy Quiroz celebrated their 53rd Wedding Anniversary on January 31, 2009 in Tucson AZ., with family and friends. Mr. and Mrs. Quiroz met in Nogales, Sonora Mexico, and got married through the courts but never had a church ceremony because at that time they had no money for a party. But now, with the help of their three children they were able to have a big celebration.
