OUTDOOR PHOTO EXHIBITION

SANTO DOMINGO, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

Award Winning Exhibition!
NOTE: "A traves del lente", which was the title of the photo exhibit, was awarded first place for "First Individual Art Exhibit" 2006, Dominican Republic. For this award, all other art exhibits are considered elegible, including painting, drawing, photography, sculture, etc., but only one award is given for the best art exhibit. This award is presented each year by the National Academy of Critics of Art (ADCA), which is a subsidiary of the International Asociation of Critics of Art based in Paris, France. On August 13, 2007 I traveled back to Santo Domingo to attend the ceremony and receive the award. This represented a great satisfaction after all the hard work and cost involved, but the "real" award for me was the overwhelming response I got from the general public.

ENGLISH:
An outdoor exhibition of 139 large format (48 X 72 inches) photographs around the fence of Independencia Park was inaugurated on September 2, 2006.
I was invited by the department of Museums and Cultural Affairs in Dominican Republic to exhibit my work around the fence of the park during the month of September. During this month they were also celebrating, for the first time, a cultural event called “Photo Imagen 2006”. This is basically a month in which several photography exhibits and other related events are put together with the purpose of promoting and enhancing the art of photography in Dominican Republic.
This exhibit was called “A traves del lente” (through the lens) and it showed some of selected samples from each of my portfolios.
The photographs will be available for sale after the exhibit, in benefit to the Foundation for Children with Cancer.
The Exhibit was originally scheduled to be on display for a month, until October 21, 2006, but because of the success achieved only in the first week after opening, we were asked to keep the exhibition on display for another two more months, after which, we were invited to take the exhibit to the city of Santiago (the second largest city in Dominican Republic), in which remained on display for over a month.
We have also received invitations to bring the exhibit to three other cities as well as the National Art Museum in Santo Domingo. These projects are pending for the later part of this year.

Unas 139 fotografías en formato grande (48 X 72 pulgadas) serán exhibidas al rededor de la verja del parque Independencia a partir de Septiembre 2 hasta Octubre 21, 2006. Esta exhibición forma parte de las muchas otras que serán presentadas en la ciudad de Santo Domingo y Santiago de otros talentosos fotógrafos dominicanos durante el mes de Septiembre, y en donde se celebra por primera vez "Photo Imagen 2006". Este importante evento organizado por el grupo "Imagen 83" pretende dar a conocer el talento y promover el arte fotográfico en República Dominicana.
La exhibición del Parque Independencia, llamada: A través del Lente, muestra algunas de las mejores fotos de mis viajes y exploraciones de los últimos cuatro años al rededor del mundo, especialmente la fauna de África, Antártica, Sur America, El Caribe, etc. Esta es la primera exhibición de mi trabajo fotográfico en mi país natal, República Dominicana.

Las fotos estarán en venta al público en diferentes tamaños y los fondos recaudados serán donados a la "Fundación para niños con cáncer".
