The photographer/artist Manny Sanchez was born in Long Island, New York to Cuban parents. When Manny was very young, his family moved to Los Angeles, where he began his life-long love of photography. He built a vast portfolio of images from his travels around the world. In 2010, Manny returned to New York. Inspired by the fashion of NYC, he began to work with fabrics as an art medium. Soon he began transferring his pictures onto silks, thus, the idea for Manuelle Scarves came about.
