My name is Anselm Molina, I'm a professional photographer based in Providence, RI.
I was born in Margarita Island, Venezuela. When I was a young boy, I used to visit this local art museum in my neighborhood. It was pleasant to be there. It felt peaceful and relaxed. I was fascinated with the variety of art sculptures and paintings. In the video room, they used to play a documentary about the birth of the State of New York. It was the first time I learned about this great city. Everything about this museum was very amusing to me. I believe it helped sparked the love and respect I have for art and architecture today.
When I was nine, my parents decided to migrate to the United States back in 1989. I was raised in the Big Apple (New York City). I was living the dream to be in the greatest city in the world as I saw it at my local museum. The former W.T.C. Towers became one of my early inspirations to admire the architecture and building structures. One day my dad took the whole family on a tour of the former W.T.C. and it was an unforgettable experience.
While in High School, my favorite class was drafting engineering. I've learned the discipline with a great teacher (Mr. Nusser) to be neat and detail-oriented with my work. Later in my Senior year, I discovered the revolution of computer-aided design (CAD) also taught by the mentioned professor. Architecture and computer aid drafting became my new love and passion. Today by the grace of God, I have a BS degree in Architecture Engineering.
It was in college that I discovered the basics of photography in an elective class. I have not stopped learning with passion since then. Art, architecture, and photography are part of my everyday life and I hope to inspire others with them.
