Image and Poetry: The Work of Julio Molinet

Julio Molinet is an award-winning videographer, poet, journalist, editor, photographer, and radio and television producer, living in El Paso, Texas. A native son of Cuba, Molinet has received numerous awards including, the National Television Festival reporting award in La Habana (2008); the Union of Cuban Writers and Artists award for directing, script-writing, photography and editing (2007); and the national prize for poetry (Cuba). He completed undergraduate and graduate work in communications, journalism, and economics. Julio is a member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ). It is with great pleasure that we share with our audiences this talented, artist's work on our site.


"My work is influenced by every day life, the seemingless insignificant labors of our day. It is influenced by men and women who go about their chores unnoticed, unrecognized."

 "I am indebted to my teachers--the masters who taught
me that observation, criticism, errors, and even indifference
 are critical processes in the development of an artist."

"I believe every human being is a hero. My work seeks to document
the extraordinary, daily lives of ordinary citizens."

Julio Molinet is currently living in El Paso, Texas. He can be reached at:  or visit and subcribe to:
