Jaime Alvarez is a photographer and artist born and raised in Puerto Rico.
His work ranges in content but at its core it deals with how people relate to place and objects through environmental and sustainability concerns.
In 2019, Jaime began self publishing small books titled “Fishtown Daily”, which follows the everyday views of the neighborhood that is rapidly going through rapid developments.
Other projects Jaime has worked on include “Consumption” which is composed of large scale images and an installation portion that includes objects that have been discarded from homes that have been demolished in the Philadelphia area. These images and objects reflect peoples materialism, and sense of nostalgia.
Jaime lives in Fishtown, Philadelphia, PA, in a converted pickle factory with his wife, son, and dogs. Learn more about him and the variety of works at www.jaimephoto.com.
