Rainy Silvestre (Matanzas, Cuba 1975). Moved to Miami, FL in 1998. Silvestre began his photographic journey as a self taught photographer, but has since graduated from New York Institute of Photography.
His photography is a compendium of life and a direct relationship to his environment. Silvestre feels a bond between objects, spaces and human emotions is key to his craft. Attempting to show this connection is his main goal as an artist.
Silvestre has been published by several magazines to include BEX Magazine (Argentina), Full Frame (Cuba), Revista El Estornudo (Cuba-Spain) . He has been part of two group exhibitions at the Darkroom Gallery in Vermont, US. Silvestre was selected twice as artist of the month by SUBURBANO (www.suburbano.net) a publishing house representing hispanics in USA. In addition he was part of Aluna Curatorial Collective’s latest exhibition at the Concrete Space Projects gallery(www.concretespace.net) [The Object and The Image “This is not a chair either”].
