“Rainy Silvestre was born in Matanzas, Cuba in 1975. He 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.
