For more than 25 years, Dolores Godinez was a teaching theatre artist and actor in Dallas, Texas. In 2014, she moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida where she was a teaching artist’s assistant at Young At Art Museum. Florida introduced her to a love of photography and exploration into visual art. She met great photographers, and Florida provided inspiration from the beauty of the local landscape. Her photographic focus started with intimate details of nature such as flowers, tiny leaves, and rock formations, as well as the ubiquitous bird photography scenes. During her time in Florida, she exhibited some of her work at Broward Art Guild, Young at Art Museum and Studio 18 at Pembroke Pines.
She is now living in San Antonio. In the uniqueness of San Antonio, she continues to explore and define her photography. Her style has now turned to street photography.
In February 2019, she exhibited a piece in San Antonio’s Street Fatale exhibit that showed the beauty of captured movement. In March and April 2020, her work is on exhibit at Centro Cultural Aztlan in a two person show called “La Mujer: Vida Y Valor.” In February and March of 2021, her work was exhibited at Southtown Art Gallery.
She holds a B.S. in Education (see more education information in the attached resume) and has studied under numerous professional photographers in South Florida. She shoots with a Leica Camera D-Lux 3.
