About our photographer - Emmanuel Garcia

An Indianola native and passionate balloon enthusiast, Emmanuel Garcia (Eman/EMANART) joined the National Balloon Classic as official photographer in 2019. In addition to photography, Eman’s other visual art endeavors include woodworking, design, and various mixed media. “As a kid growing up in Indianola, watching hot air balloons fly over my house, I never envisioned that I would have the privilege to be involved in the event, much less become the official photographer.” 

During the National Balloon Classic you will find Eman in just about every corner of the balloon field, (and in the sky!) but to truly appreciate his beautiful work, visit
