ADA LUISA TRILLO

The 33rd Chelsea International Fine Art Competition Exhibition
August 14 – August 25, 2018
Reception: Thursday, August 16, 2018 6-8 PM

Ada Trillo is a fine art photographer based in Philadelphia, PA, and Juarez, Mexico. Trillo holds degrees from the Istituto Marangoni in Milan and Drexel University in Philadelphia. Born into an immigrant family living in El Paso, Texas, Trillo gained a unique perspective on the difficulties faced by first generation Mexican-American-immigrant families, which sparked an interest in the subject of human rights across borders. Her work is concerned with human rights issues facing Latin America, and Latin Americans in the United States. She travels frequently to countries in South and Central America, including Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras, often with caravans of immigrants. She meets her subjects on these expeditions, and seeks to capture the intricacies of their circumstances and the impact it has had on them, through her photographs. She gathers as many stories and photographs as she can, then edits them digitally in an effort to capture their stories and experiences.

Trillo was recently awarded a CFEVA Fellowship by The Center For Emerging Visual Artists and was named the Visual Artist-in-Residence for Fleisher Art Memorial in Philadelphia. Her work is included in the permanent collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Trillo was recently awarded First Place in Editorial Photos with the Tokyo International Foto Awards.
