I was born in Habana, under the Caribbean light during the ardent years of the Cuban
revolution. My father was already a recognized photographer and from a young age I
had access to the camera and his understanding about art and photographical skills.
Being related to the best Cuban photographers of the time allowed me to have access
to their photographic equipment, their visions and their illusions. In a way my formation
and aesthetic vision was influenced by spending this time as a spectator and pupil of
Osvaldo Salas, Raúl Corrales and my father in special Alberto Korda. Through them I
gained excessive knowledge and great skills and was immersed in a world where
everything I perceived was through lights and shadows.
Taking photographs to me is a style of living and a necessity. It is the window in which I
can particularly look and expose life. Sharing my images is how I integrate myself into a
world that is there but in the way I’m imagining it.
My work has focused in the search and revelation of a flat image into another dimension
and a new context. One that moves beyond the technical aspects of photography like
the lighting or framing that conforms a scene. My vision is different, it is based in using
various experimental techniques on the edition and printing of my images in order to
distort them and position them into a new and improved reality.
My process It is a mixture of technical dark room photography classical silver print,
printmaking and paint on top of different types of materials as a result each of the
pieces is unique in its own
The idea of my art is to express visual elements with a sensorial and aesthetically point
of view. My work is often characterized by our surroundings and its evolution; I perceive
architecture of life as something masterful and that has evolved beyond us to reside in
our visual horizon. I often represent the persistence of nature and try to recover what
once belonged to her, the meaning of its contrasts and what we wouldn’t see or believe
they existed otherwise....
