Born into a military family, I’ve lived in more than a few places. Bi-cultural, I enjoy the life-long exploration of my identity as a Filipino-American. For physical and mental fitness I practice Kajukenbo (Chu’an Fa Kung Fu), a martial art rooted in self-defense and street fighting. I enjoy coffee breaks, daydreaming, cutting and gluing things, and consuming TV shows and movies.
My interest in photography started in high school, where I served as photo editor of my senior annual. It was there that my exploration of image-making began to manifest. I like to think my photographic style teeters between abstraction, surrealism, and random happenstance. I’ve studied at Photographic Center Northwest, and have exhibited at the school’s fundraiser, Long Shot, since 2010.
My portfolio can be found at my site marivicpinedo.com.
Life would be extremely challenging, and would not be complete, without my supportive network of family and friends, and streaming.
