Joel Salcido is always in quest of new visual frontiers, whether they be out in the highlands of any earthly corner of the planet or the mere comforts of a studio.
Salcido enjoys people a lot, especially their tales of conquest and defeat.
Once, at the top of a meseta in northern Spain, he witnessed an 82-year-old shepherd convince two enraged men that their fight was not worthy of true gentlemen. “Ole” to that!
Capturing life at its best has won him a few awards along the way, however he is most happy that some of these images have made their way into the vaults of art museums across the grand state of Texas.
When not in the States, you’ll likely find him chasing those brave bulls of Spain, or trekking his way to the best tequila Mexico has to offer.
