Raul Rincon was born in Cartagena, Colombia into a family of artists. Both of his parents are painters and both of his grandparents were professional photographers. At a very early age he was given his first camera which he learnt to use with his grandmother, and by the hand of his grandfather he began playing in the dark room with large format negatives. Later on and after moving to Canada, he studied under photographers Struan and Yuri Dojc.
Raul is known for his painterly attention to detail, his skill in directing and his astonishing lighting. He makes evident in his images the mischievous and philosophical wit that is representative of his personality. The result is a bold, elegant and powerful image that lingers.
