Imagine. Create. Repeat.

Yo Soy Mota

Over the past two years, Danny Mota has taught himself to construct (and sometimes deconstruct) images primarily on his iPhone. His end products range from stark, black-and-white to pseudo-psychedelic color palettes; from dream-like city landscapes, to candid urban portraits. Danny’s relentless ambition, paired with unbounded passion for his hometown, has made him a leading ambassador for Instagram and Chicago alike.

His rapidly-amassing Instagram followers are witness to his evolution of what it means to be a photographer. One day he’ll feature the Chi skyline superimposed onto a man’s face; the next you’ll feel as though you’re falling through your screen from the top of Marina Towers.  One thing remains constant: Danny provides a view of Chicago you won’t want to miss.
