Jared IorioJared Iorio was born and raised in Inwood, New York. After high school he left for college in Florida and somehow ended up in Los Angeles a short time later where he’s been for the last 10 years, with a couple of year jaunt to Central America in between.
While in Los Angeles, on a lark, he took some photojournalism courses, edited his college newspaper and magazine - and then moved to Haiti for a time post-quake, documenting daily life while providing mutual aid to friends in the area.
Back in Los Angeles he lives between a van (everywhere), a boat (Marina del Rey) and a community organizing space (South LA). When he's not taking pictures he's fomenting community-based revolution and social justice or else getting into arguments about that stuff on the internet.
