  • CESAR AUGUSTO
    Photographer and Creative Director

    I was born in 1969 in Havana, Cuba and began making photographs as a child. My father, a professional photographer, brought me to shoots and the darkroom, teaching me every aspect of the process of making a photograph.
    During my teenager years, I worked as a photographer in several photo studios in Havana. I started as a photographer’s assistant and then worked as a professional photographer.
    Immediately after high school I began working for the Cuban Navy as a photographer documenting military maneuvers across Cuba.
    In 1989, I was admitted as a photography student to the highly competitive Instituto Superior de Arte, Cuba’s most prestigious art university. I started making short films and eventually switched my major to Motion Picture Directing. I graduated in 1994 with offers to direct some of the island’s top talent.
    I continue to photograph everything around me hoping to communicate my vision to those who like my work.
    I'm commercially represented in the US by S:B Reps and in Mexico by Esfera Photo. My fine art work is represented by The Chicago Art Source Gallery and by The Chicago Project (Edelman Gallery)
