About Jorge Hurtado
"My name is Jorge E Hurtado Rochal, I’m 39 years old and currently residing in New Jersey, USA. My 9-5 is in the military so photography is not a job for me, it’s been my life's passion and one amongst countless hobbies. My shooting is very much like my musical preference, very eclectic! I enjoy photographing things that I find aesthetically pleasing, interesting, bizarre, of scientific nature, etc. I love minimal and compact systems, thus the reason I leaned towards Olympus, it frees me to go further and encourages me to actually take the camera with me. Over the years I have been changing the way I see photography and how I present my craft, I now believe that a photo should be that, a photo; if we want to use brushes, then we should become painters instead. However, I do love how available our medium has become, and the work so many talented people are creating every day, I hope it continues to inspire and grow."
