Hi! My name is Marisol Dorantes-Silva (don’t worry, I answer to most pronunciations.) I am a photographer from Toluca, Mexico and Detroit, Michigan. In 2013, I graduated from the Michigan State University School of Journalism, where a sad semester of economics courses encouraged me to lean into what I loved- story telling. When I’m not exploring and documenting, I’m either playing with Lulu, my sister’s puppy, being talked into running half-marathons by my sister, or dropping by my parents’ house for some delicious home made food. If you have a project in mind you think I can help with or questions about my past work, please get in touch.
