On the first anniversary of its foundation, the South Florida Latin American Photography Forum features the photographic works of Miami-based artist Rem(o)n Díaz. Decisive metaphors, the exhibition, is an invitation to enjoy his intense photographic journey embarked upon as a visual poem.

Rem(o)n Díaz (aka David Díaz) @fotoarteremon (Havana, 1972) is a Hispanic-Cuban Miami-based photographer, born in Havana, Cuba. He is a self-taught photographer who started his career around the year 2009 while living in the Canary Isles, Spain. He learned photography by himself, devoting not only to learn about the technical aspects of it but also the art of image-making. His images are snapshots of reality filtered through his creative mind, being everything instinctively connected.

In 2013 Rem(o)n received an award in the travel photography category from Sony Community Contest. In 2013 and 2014, his work was selected as finalist of Dubai's Hamdan International Photography Award in two different categories. In 2015, he was awarded an Honorable Mention by the second edition of the Miami Photo Salon held in Miami, Florida. In 2017, he was the Finalist of the One Eyeland Photography Awards. He has exhibited his work in different individual and collective exhibitions in the USA and Spain.

About the South Florida Latin American Photography Forum
Founded in May of 2020 by Miami-based photographer William Riera.
Focusing on the photographic works of artists living and/or working in Florida and other parts of the USA, the South Florida Latin American Photography Forum (SoFLaFoto) takes on the challenge of locating, compiling, organizing and sharing the information related to the works of photographers that have documented or are documenting the life of the Latin American community, and also the works of those who have documented or are documenting the Latin American region (Hispanic America, Brazil, and Haiti) through the many issues that are relevant to the community like memory, history, diaspora, immigration, identity, family, religion, gender issues, racism, addiction, inequality, LGBTQ rights, etc., all within the contemporary, documentary and street photography realms. In addition we collaborate with artists, curators, and researchers of Latin American photography and lens-based art works.
