Skippy Sanchez has been working as a professional newspaper staff photographer in the United States since 1981.

Recently working in Latin America when he can get away from his day job, he specializes in documentary projects such as el Dia de los Muertos, the festival of la Virgen de Guadalupe and various Christian mission projects in Honduras.

Other passions include street photography, travel, portraiture and illustrations. He doesn’t do weddings or sports, so don’t ask.

"Starving Artist Group" question

I am working on a newspaper/multimedia article on the Starving Artists Group Art Sales (you know, “Nothing over $59”) that are being held in area hotels around the country lately. I have a possible lead to the owners in Houston, but nothing definite yet.

Many say the source of these mass-produced paintings are Asian sweat shops, but obviously I need specific, credible sources for this sort of claim (beyond blogs, internet opinions and rants) etc., before it goes in my newspaper.

Any help would be appreciated.
