Castro Frank is one of today’s premier contemporary street photographers. His style fuses a journalistic approach with an artistic eye to create imagery that is raw and speaks powerfully of our time. His compassion and empathy for the disenfranchised within our society has prompted him to capture them in such a way which attempts to restore the humanity and dignity of those often forgotten. Castro turns his lens toward systematic and societal issues that plague our nation i.e. homelessness, prostitution, poverty, drug abuse, and the plights of immigrants here in America.

Castro’s original photographs have been collected by high profile celebrities, collectors and establishments like FOX and CBS. Written publicity includes articles in the LA Times, Huffington Post, Daily News and London’s Hunger Magazine to name a few. He has been interviewed and done live segments with Telemundo and selected as fine art photographer to kick off the Los Angeles Council District 7 public art initiative “Museo Aire Libre” with his bus bench public installation.
