Joshue Molina (b. 1991) is an American photographer/artist of Salvadorian descent, whom was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. Currently he attends Art Center College of Design where he is pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) in Fine Art with a focus in Photography and Digital Imaging.

After completing Intro to Photography at Cerritos College in 2010, Molina fell in love with the art form and so began his photographic career. Molina has always been fixated on the power of visual imagery and this innate focus has facilitated his professional growth in the field. His practice is largely image based while encompassing a wide range of processes, such as traditional to experimental and everything in between.

In The Destruction of the Los Angeles River and The Streets of Los Angeles, Part I, Molina captures local environmental issues from his experience of living in the vast, urban landscape of Los Angeles. Molina’s sociopolitical views have been shaped by the photographic exploration of the city where he captures the powerful images of toxicity, waste, and land misuse. In his effort to document these sensitive topics, Molina’s objective is to create an instant dialogue for the viewer. He challenges his audience to critically think about the world we live in and the ecological footprint we are leaving behind.

Molina aligns himself with l’art pour l’art (art for art’s sake) and identifies with photographer Arnold Newman’s statement about art: “As for myself, I work the way I do because of the kind of person that I am – my work is an expression of myself. It reflects me, my fascination with people, the physical world around us, and the exciting medium in which I work. I do not claim that my way is the best or the only way, it is simply my way. It is an expression of myself, of the way I think and feel.” Molina’s work comes from a variety of sources. In Disquiet Vistas and Lith Chemigrams, Molina shows his interest for working with 19th century photographic processes. He continues to refine his fine art skills, and looks to artists such as Christina Fernandez, Ed Heckerman, Anthony Hernandez, Amanda Keller-Konya, Sally Mann, and James Welling for inspiration.
