Dino Dinco was raised by a family of fighting chickens in rural Pennsylvania before moving to Los Angeles as a child.  He is a photographer, filmmaker, artist and curator. (www.dinodinco.com)

He is represented by Galerie Baumet Sultana in Paris (www.galeriebaumetsultana.com).

About El Abuelo: The smoky voice and lush words of young San Antonio teacher and poet, Joe Jimenez, guides the viewer through a snapshot of his early life. Preconceived notions are challenged as we experience Jimenez, his body covered in gang tattoos, methodically ironing his clothes (a domestic action often thought of as ‘women’s work’) while speaking of his love for another man: his ‘first vato.’
