‘My City: Downtown Phoenix’

Edwin Gutierrez is a 25-year old Phoenix native. He grew up in South Phoenix and has always had an appreciation for our city (despite the heat!) Though he works in the medical industry, Gutierrez says he is drawn to anything artistic, including creating cool videos like this is one.

His inspiration for this video came from being in downtown and witnessing its life and energy. According to Gutierrez, “Once I began to see downtown fill up with busses, cars and people, that’s when I knew what I wanted to do with the video: I wanted to capture downtown awakening. I wanted to see the people moving across the street, entering busses to get to their destination or driving their cars to wherever they were headed to. Once I saw that, I knew that’s what I wanted to create.” Follow Gutierrez’s work on Instagram at @EdwinGtrz.
