Anthony Garcia is a San Antonio-based photographer fascinated with Chiaroscuro’s interplay between light and darkness. By playing with the balance of light and shadow, he seeks to capture that which dwells beneath the surface. Through collaboration and direction, he coaxes out what is not always visible to the naked eye, in what he can only refer to as a “Rock and Roll” aesthetic with dark tonalities, such as portraying women in power poses instead of a diminutive demeanor. He delves deeply into his subject’s personalities and pulls them out of their comfort zones, taking them and the viewer on a personal reflection journey, and telling a story that takes them to another place.
Xelena González practices the healing arts through writing and movement. She is a storyteller, dancer, and visiting author who centers self-love in her multi-disciplinary workshops for all ages. Her picture books include the award-winning ALL AROUND US (Cinco Puntos Press, 2017), the recently-released WHERE WONDER GROWS (Lee & Low, 2022), and the upcoming title REMEMBERING (Simon & Schuster, 2023). Her writing for adults includes poetry, essays, fiction, and screenwriting. LOTERIA REMEDIOS is her collection of reflections, divinations, plant and animal medicine, and other tools for self-healing based on the time-honored game (forthcoming, Hay House, 2024). A former librarian and enrolled member of the Tap Pilam Coahuiltecan Nation, Xelena has become a sought-after speaker on topics such as radical self love, creative early literacy strategies, inhabiting story through music and movement, and reclaiming indigenous identity in Latinx communities.
