jorge de la torriente
Jorge de la Torriente is an American photographer dedicated to the creation of minimalist and modern images. He has garnered numerous international awards, including the Hasselblad Masters Prize in 2018 for his remarkable aerial photography. Born in Miami in 1971, he began his artistic career as an architect after studying at the prestigious Cornell University in New York state. His artistic style is strongly influenced by his initial professional experience as a designer, which he practised for over fifteen years. Its slow process of construction and limited creativity led to Jorge de la Torriente turning his attention to another medium – photography – to further explore his interest in art and assuage his love of travel. Captured on the American continent and in the wide Atlantic Ocean, his landscape photography enables the spectator to appreciate the simplicity of nature while experiencing its immensity.
