“Fe7(CN)18” by Michael Redondo

A Los Alamos resident since he was three years old, Michael Redondo has left his mark on the community and the art world. Easily recognized by his trademark beard, many have seen Michael on various movie and television show sets as an extra, he’s on the Historical Society’s Board and has even run for County Council. But Michael is also an accomplished artist as well, favoring pottery and photography as his primary media. He frequents the Los Alamos Life Drawing Group, although he says that he doesn’t draw much. He says, “[the group] helps inform my other art forms”. And his other art forms have definitely benefited from it!

When he was eight, he and his brother Tomàs were given matching Fisher Price 16mm Range Finder cameras and he’s been an “amateur photographer ever since”. He and his brother have played with various photographic techniques including utilizing ambient light to emphasize light and shadows that a regular photograph won’t pick up. Two years ago, he started dabbling in Cyanotype. Michael found that he enjoyed experimenting with an “alternative process to traditional photography” and now chooses to pass his knowledge along to others through his art classes, taught right here at the Fuller Lodge Art Center.
