His show depicts all types of commerce taking place in Phoenix, the United States, Mexico and around the world.
This picture is called Noodle Maker. As Valente says, “Handmade things are hard to come by, and it’s reassuring to see a man, at a craft as ancient as noodle making, keep the tradition alive.”
Stop by the Reynolds Center in the Cronkite Building during business hours to see Valente’s complete show. His photos will be on display through May. Or, visit his website here.
