Working the oil fields of the Texas plains, Garcia — otherwise the cool diesel-driving good ol’ boy — has a natural eye for capturing the sublime from the banality of the everyday. Using just his iPhone and digital filters, Garcia’s images evoke a pseudo-impressionistic aura where light awakens the architecture and composition of his subjects. There’s a nostalgic story in each of his images that’s unlocked by the onlooker. That would be you.

Hi There. I’m Joey Garcia. I work in the oilfields of Texas and I document what I see every day on my Apple iPhone 4. All of the pics you see here are taken and edited with my iPhone and mobile applications.
I love good music, good beer, and living in the great state of Texas.
I’ll be updating this site with more prints over the next few weeks. If you see something on my Instagram feed that you’d like to order as a print, please shoot me a message.
Thanks for visiting, y’all. Hope you enjoy.
I need a camera to my eye
To my eye, reminding
Which lies I have been hiding
which echoes belong
I’ve counted out days
to see how far
I’ve driven in the dark
with echoes in my heart
