Carlos Esguerra travels the world making powerful images of our built and natural environment. His work has met with critical acclaim internationally. Then, he comes home to Queens. This exhibition grew out of the artist's response to the article he saw in Fodor's Travel magazine in June 2015, "Why Queens Is the NYC Borough You Can No Longer Ignore". Esguerra's goal is to go beyond the 'pretty picture' level in creating the images of our landmarks as well as Queens enclaves of cultural diversity.
Carlos Esguerra was born in the Philippines, and was in the computer field for 36 years, He re-discovered photography before retiring in 2003. His landscape and fine arts photography work has received more than 60 national and international awards, and has been exhibited in exhibitions in the U.S. and abroad in Argentina, Austria, Canada, France, Germany, and Sweden. In 2008, he received the 'Pamana ng Pilipino' (Philippine Heritage) Presidential Award.
