Born in Mexico, Antonio Gómez started his journey as a photographer as he discovered the work of photographer Henry Cartier-Bresson while stationed in Germany.  Soon after his enlistment in the U.S. Army he attended the College of Creative Studies in Detroit where he earned a B.F.A. in applied photography and a Masters in Fine Art from Wayne State University. Antonio moved to Las Vegas Nevada in 2004 where he holds a full time teaching position at the College of Southern Nevada.

 

Antonio continues to document his surroundings and its people and occasionally goes to Mexico to continue with the documentation of his beloved country. In 2010 Antonio made the short list for the prestigious Guggenheim fellowship. Antonio has exhibited in several galleries across the country as well as Canada and Mexico.  Antonio has self-published four books on some of his ongoing personal projects.  His latest book “Life, Devotion and Departure” is very close to his heart as he documents his parents struggle with Alzheimer’s, their devotion to each other and the hardships that result from their retirement in Mexico.
