A minimalist photography portfolio website design and development for an international fine-art photographer.
Originally from Mexico, Manuel made the jump to digital photography in 2009. He studied at La Fototeca in Guatemala City and Boston University’s Center for Digital Imaging Arts in Washington DC where he currently resides. His main body of work focuses on exploring the urban landscape, the integration of the face and body into fine art, and fashion photography. Manuel joined the IMF-World Bank International Photographic Society (IPS) in 2013 and was rookie of the year in the 2013-14 season and Photographer of the Year in 2015-16.
Manuel needed a simple platform to display his fine-art photography. We started with a hand-coded theme utilizing the masonry isotope plugin for a tight portfolio display. We then upgraded to a WordPress build and redesigned the theme based on feedback he got from his users. The site overall is clean and functions well in its simplicity.
