Chris Dorantes

Originally from San Antonio, Texas, Chris Dorantes is a senior photography major pursuing a BFA in new media journalism. Fresh from retirement out of the Army, Dorantes wanted to use his GI bill to pursue a craft that is fulfilling and study photography at Santa Fe University of Art and Design. With only two weeks remaining before he graduates, he is wrapping up the final touches on his BFA thesis show “Nature Érotique,” which started from the exploration of macro photography then evolved into an intriguing project that embodies the shapes of nature in a sexual form. The show takes place from 5-7 p.m., Dec. 8 at the Marion Photographic Center.
