Edwin Pagán

Edwin Pagán is a Bronx-based multidisciplinary artist whose work centers around photography, filmmaking, sound and graphic design. Pagán was introduced to the arts at age 10 at the Hoe Avenue Boys & Girls Club, which led to his extensive careers in photography and cinematography. He is noted as one of the premiere visual artists from the Bronx, and his body of work is an intimate and humane look at the cultural idiosyncrasies of inner-city communities from an “insider’s point-of-view.”

In 2011, he co-founded Seis del Sur, a photo collective of six photojournalism and documentary photographers who have documented the South Bronx for over four decades. A life-long fan of horror, in 2008 he founded LATIN HORROR (, an online portal that promotes Latin influenced horror. As a result, he is widely credited with establishing a distinct and valid genre in the film industry.

More recently, Pagán has harnessed his creative skills and ventured into the virtual- and augmented-reality space to create interactive multimedia installations that take as a point of departure the same themes he’s explored in his photographic work.
