Cara Romero

Cara Romero (b. 1977, Inglewood, CA) is a contemporary fine art photographer. An enrolled citizen of the Chemehuevi Indian Tribe, Romero was raised between contrasting settings: the rural Chemehuevi reservation in Mojave Desert, CA and the urban sprawl of Houston, TX. Romero’s identity informs her photography, a blend of fine art and editorial photography, shaped by years of study and a visceral approach to representing Indigenous and non-Indigenous cultural memory, collective history, and lived experiences from a Native American female perspective.

Romi Estrada

Editorial Award, Youth Awardee

My name is Romina Estrada and I am a 17 year old fashion and portrait photographer. I am a freshman in college, and currently enrolled in Cerritos College. In the future I plan on pursuing directing and screenwriting. I’d describe myself the same way I’d describe my photography, chaotic and colorful. My biggest inspirations are Tonya Harding, Chloë Sevigny, Greta Gerwig, and River Phoenix. I make art to bring reason to a world that doesn’t make sense to me yet.
