—  About

Nieves Montaño is a visual storyteller who grew up in the borderlands. 

Nieves is a Phoenix, Arizona native who grew up in Sonora, Mexico. She moved to Tucson for graduate school, but after a few years in the academic world, she decided that life was too short to spend it in a windowless lab. Her eclectic style is a reflection of her desire to infuse a feeling of inclusion and humanness to her work. She loves to capture vibrant aspects of Southern Arizona border life. 

Nieves divides her time between working for a non-profit agency, commissioned photography and cultural documentation. She blogs about a variety of topics, ranging from personal experiences, local cultural scene, to immigration and other important matters of humanity.
