Birdhouse in Your Soul

Visual Intellect

Photographer Miguel Cedillo has an ingenious eye Miguel Cedillo has vision. And, while his glance may fall on spaces shared by other eyes, it is what his camera captures that sets Cedillo’s gaze apart. “Shooting fashion connects me to the reasons why material culture is important to people,” said Cedillo, describing his recent fashion-industry projects. “The concepts a garment represents result from our...
