“Photography is truth.” – Jean-Luc Godard
Meet Monica Alonso ( ig. Cheezybrainz ), a 26 year old ( Cuban decent) photographer from Miami, FL. I ( Jonjon ) got a chance to go out shooting with her while getting to know more about her.
The amazing talented photographer goes around cities ( Miami, New York, Havana,Cuba, etc. ) shooting film photography. Capturing the graffiti from locals to legends and street portraits. She is armed with a Minolta srt 102 35mm film, a mamiya c330 Medium format 120mm film and a graflex crown graphic 4×5 film Large format.
Her start to photography was in high schoot learning with a digital camera but now the last 3 years she has gone old school with just film cameras. When she isn’t out shooting she likes to make tie dyes but her love is being in the darkroom making prints. That’s right she develops her own prints and for others too. Her favorite photographer is Mary Ellen Mark and Diane Arbus. Her favorite movie is To kill a mockingbird. So if you see this lil 5’4 girl carrying a large camera around know that her photos are the truth.
