Two Way Lens and Tony Mendoza

Two Way Lens proudly presents Tony Mendoza.

I am very excited to add another wonderful photographer to the Two Way Lens project.

Tony Mendoza is a Cuban-American photographer. He was born in Havana, Cuba, and moved to Miami, Florida with his family in 1960. He graduated from Yale with a Bachelor of Engineering and Harvard with a Master of Architecture, before becoming a full time photographic artist in 1973.

Mendoza has received three National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships, a Guggenheim Photography Fellowship as well as two Creative Writing fellowships from the Ohio Arts Council. His photographs have featured in many major museums.

His most famous book, Ernie, is a photographic memoir centered around a cat he encountered when he moved in to an apartment in New York City.

Mendoza is currently an instructor of photography at the Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio.

Please make sure to visit Tony's website where you will find more fantastic work and projects.

The flowers riminds me the best moments of my life. The woman that I loved, and I could never have. Argentinian, she was. Carmela was her name. I have met her in some Argentina apartments that I have rented while I was in Buenos Aires. Once she left. That was the end of our story.
