He's won Academy Awards three times and frequently collaborates with Mexican directors Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu and Alfonso Cuarón. He's a pretty big fucking deal.

Well, the beloved Mexican cinematographer has his own Instagram, where he showcases his photography, that's quite stunning to say the least.

And recently, Chivo captured some shots of the protests that have taken place in the last month...

...including the women's march in Downtown LA that drew hundreds of thousands of people...

...and the recent protests at LAX against Donald Trump's travel ban on seven predominantly Muslim countries.

According to Slate, he often "shoots with a Ricoh GR Digital IV, Nikon D800, and iPhone5." And he often uses natural light sources.

And even though he's a world-renowned cinematographer, he still makes time to create art that reflects the current state of the world.
