About the Artist

Cesar was born in 1969 in Havana, Cuba and began making photographs as a child. His father, a professional photographer, brought him to shoots and the darkroom, teaching him every aspect of the process of making a photograph.

During his teenager years, Cesar worked as a photographer in several photo studios in Havana. He started as a photographer’s assistant and then worked as a professional photographer. Immediately after high school he began working for the Cuban Navy as a photographer documenting military maneuvers across Cuba.

In 1989, he was admitted as a photography student to the highly competitive Instituto Superior de Arte, Cuba’s most prestigious art university. He started making short films and eventually switched his major to Motion Picture Directing. He graduated in 1994 with offers to direct some of the island’s top talent.

He continues to photograph everything around him, hoping to communicate his vision to those who like his work.
He is commercially represented by Esfera Photo.

His fine art work is represented by The Chicago Art Source Gallery and by The Chicago Project (Edelman Gallery).
