A local photographer has been recognized in American Photo Magazine.
Jeanette Nevarez, who also goes by Muranyi, was featured on the publication for her photos of Anapra, taken from the U.S - Mexico border in El Paso.
She shot the pictures through a telescope attached to her camera and they caught the attention of the publication through her Tumblr site.
Nevarez said she mostly does fine art portrait photography, which can be seen on her website, http://www.muranyi.us/.
"I also like to do documentary work so i wanted to document something near the border that reflects life here but since i was born here but grew up in Juarez," she said. "It's a very close relationship I have with the city here."
Nevarez is graduating from EPCC this semester and plans to attend the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
