Jorge V. Gavilondo

Jorge V. Gavilondo was born of Cuban parents in Chicago, USA, in 1949, and has lived in Havana since 1950. Jorge started in the art of photography being just a boy, using a Leica C from his father. He was always drawn by urban documentary photography, a line of work he has maintained over the years.

Four years ago, Jorge turned "digital" and started a new stage in his photographic work, intense and systematic, building an archive of some 70,000 digital images, mainly of Havana and its people.

Jorge is a member of the Cuban Fund for the Photographic Image. Samples of his work are now in private collections in Cuba, Mexico, and the USA. His last 7 personal exhibits have been done in Havana, Cuba, Mexico City, and San Francisco, California. He has also been invited to participate in 3 recent collective exhibits in Havana, and in Palo Alto, California. He is an invited lecturer at the "Josi Martm" Journalism Institute of Havana, Cuba, where he teaches digital photography.
