Edwin Carungay makes his home in the San Francisco Bay Area, where he's been fortunate to have cultivated a creative career he truly enjoys. As a senior graphic designer and multimedia producer, photography has always been by his side. Beginning in 2017, that sideline hobby took a different direction – and evolved to become his passion after studying the works of Alex Webb and Nikos Economopoulos. Their powerful play with light and shadow, geometry, levels and layers interacting within one frame, alongside dynamic candid gestures were an epiphany, and remain to be profound examples his photography practice strives towards.
Edwin continues to work full-time as a creative marketing and communications professional – and whenever away from the office and studio, he is intently exploring the streets – with a focus on capturing the unscripted experiences of people navigating their lives in vibrant settings. Utilizing the interplay of light, color and shadow, his photography gravitates towards the genuine, unfiltered moments that shape individuality in both his hometown and abroad.
