Afonso Salcedo ~ 'Music Training' & 'Embrace'

Afonso Salcedo has worked in the film industry for more than a decade. He started out in London, working as a junior Technical Director on movies like Harry Potter 3 and Troy. Then moved to San Francisco to take up a position at Pixar working on some of their most critically-acclaimed films: Ratatouille, Wall-E, Up and Toy Story 3. Salcedo has also spent time at DreamWorks Animation as a senior artist on Madagascar 3 and Rise of the Guardians and is the creator and co-director of “It Gets Better… Love, Pixar”, working alongside an amazing team of talented co-workers to produce and create one of the most highly viewed and well received video contributions to the It Gets Better campaign. In the last year, Afonso has set up his own media and photography production company, Sutro Studios. We are very grateful for these two beautiful photographs which Afonso has donated to The Mother Hen Project. The first photo was taken in Haiti by Salcedo for the non-profit, Rise2Shine , an organization which alleviates the suffering of young children aged six months to five years from impoverished communities worldwide. The second image is from Afonso's 2014 expedition to Burning Man.
