Elias Carmona is one of the most active photographers in Chicago's Latin community. Since his arrival from Puerto Rico in 2007 he has carved a niche in the city's cultural and artistic circles. Carmona's work has been exhibited at The Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center, The Africaribe Cultural Center, El Barrio Fest, and countless national festivals. Elías became well-known in Puerto Rico for his famous picture of "Los Hijos de Borinquen", a tribute to the classic site in Old San Juan made famous by the young independentista movement of the 1970's and 80's. Carmona has been documenting concerts, festivals, and cultural events for close to 25 years. He has been recognized by many as an essential player in the preservation of the cultural and artistic memory of Chicago's Latin community.
