Nathaniel Tetsuro Paolinelli: Downtown
June 11, 2022 – September 3, 2022
The exhibition Nathaniel Tetsuro Paolinelli: Downtown offers a collection of recent images photographed in and around Downtown Albuquerque between 2017 and 2022. As a self-described documentary photographer, Tetsuro is known for his compelling portraits and a unique ability to authentically engage with his subjects to produce images that suggest both an implicit trust between artist and subject and a desire to “take part in his surroundings and as opposed to an outsider taking some snapshots of what’s going on.” From family to lowriders, nightlife and community, the spirit of Albuquerque is on view through this intimate visual exploration of Downtown, a story told through the camera that puts the pillars of Duke City culture on full display. Curated by Daniel Ulibarri, professional photographer, educator, and 516 ARTS staff member.

Born in California, Nathaniel Tetsuro Paolinelli has lived within three miles of downtown Albuquerque since he was nine months old. A graduate of Freedom High, Tetsuro grew up immersed in the Duke City culture, which influenced his photographic eye with a taste for the dynamic and unique. He has taught photographic workshops to a variety of audiences and has exhibited his work both nationally and internationally. Several pieces of his work can be found in the photo archive of the Albuquerque Museum.
