Carlos Jaramillo, Tierra Del Sol

Photographer Carlos Jaramillo finds parallels between his current home city of Los Angeles, and McAllen, Texas, the small border town where he was born.

 

Jaramillo’s parents are both immigrants—his mother is Mexican and his father Colombian. In Los Angeles, he found a comfortable familiarity in the abundance of Mexican people and culture woven throughout the city. The photos that populate his recently published photobook, “Tierra Del Sol” (Pomegranate Press, 2022), document “El Clásico de las Américas,” an annual weeklong charreria that takes place in Pico Rivera, California.
