Nicholas Pinto is an Italian-American photographer with an eye for the moments found in everyday life. Born and raised on the Southwest Side of Chicago, Illinois. After serving in the United States Army, he picked up a camera as a way to express himself. This unique background has given him a rare view of the people and places found in front of his lens.
