Arturo Soto

Arturo Soto is currently studying for his doctoral degree in Fine Art at the Ruskin School of Art and St Catherine's College, University of Oxford.

Arturo's practice is concerned with the photographic study of the quotidian, particularly the discerning ways in which the camera renders banal spaces and assigns them aesthetic and affective values. He is interested in how personal and cultural memory are embedded in the urban landscape, understanding the city as a sum of imaginaries that transcend physical space.

Arturo holds an MFA in Photography, Video and Related Media from the School of Visual Arts, an MA in the History of Art from University College London and a BFA in Photography and Film from the Savannah College of Art and Design. He is currently a CONACYT scholar, and has been the recipient of two FONCA grants and a Jumex scholarship.
