bio

Alfredo Guzman was born to poor working class people during the year 1981 in Frenchcamp, CA. Guzman's father worked as a manual laborer and his mother was a stay at home mother. Guzman's parents moved to the Imperial Valley in 1983 to be closer to family. The Imperial Valley was and pretty much still is at this time populated chiefly by Mexicans and Rednecks due to it's close proximity to the U.S/Mexican border and the Glamis sand dunes (rednecks like to use their ATV's to run over the native wildlife). The culture of the Imperial Valley consists of people pretending to be cowboys on certain days of the year and various institutions and monuments dedicated to

the brave men who pretended to be cowboys for so long.

 

Guzman eventually left the Imperial Valley with his girlfriend to attend art school in Los Angeles.

 

Guzman currently works processing photographs at a drugstore where he is constantly threatened by the mentally unstable. These mentally unstable people range from the elite of society to the homeless and destitute.
