Born in the Lower East Side of Manhattan and raised throughout the boroughs of New York City, Luis moved to Los Angeles in 2013. He returned to NY in 2018. 

He learned how to question at Phillips Exeter Academy and how not to question at Bard College. His photographic work is often based on literature while his writing is visual and sensory.

He is the son of two immigrants from the Dominican Republic. These photos are a small part of his journey as a First Generation American.
