Raúl Cañibano was born in Havana in 1961, trained to be a welder and it took until 1984 before he started, self-taught, to get involved with photography. In engaging with the works of the great masters of painting he formed his own style, which he calls “somehow surrealist”. His work has been published in magazines across the world and shown in major photographic museums and at well-known festivals like the Recontres de la Photographie d’Arles. He is a member of the Unión de Escritores y Artista de Cuba (UNEAC) and the Fondo Cubano de la Imagen. His pictures have been acquired by prominent public collections in Cuba, like the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, as well as by the International Center of Photography (ICP) in New York. He was awarded the Grand Prix of Cuban Photography for his outstanding creative work.
