Chris Molina (aka The Auburn Sky)
Los Angeles & San Diego
There is a good possibility I wouldn't be who or where I am today without the guiding influence of my family. My father an architect, older brother - a filmmaker, big sister - a photographer/graphic designer. While they never taught me formally, somehow I managed to absorb fragments of their footsteps, turning those into my own shaped path.
Music has always been a driving catalyst for my imagination - provoking photography as a form of self expression towards wandering thoughts, emotions, and often misplaced soundscapes. Electronic music and particularly the work of Underworld along with their multidisciplinary collective TOMATO spoke volumes to my sphere of cerebral ideologies. I became active in photography though covering the early days of Los Angeles electroinc/dj culture while completing art school and continued to work towards an emphasis on live bands, experimental imagery, and design.
