Cartagena photographer Juan Manuel Díaz Burgos puts together a project around the passion of some people for music, and specifically the SON. The exhibition focuses on the capital of the Dominican Republic, Santo Domingo, and specifically on the 'hot' neighborhood of Villa Consuelo, where the place where the 'Club Amigos del SON' organizes its meetings is located.
The show captured by Díaz Burgos's camera is wrapped in a poor blue light coming from neon tubes. What gave intimacy to the place full of small tables and stools, in order to make better use of the tiny space of this room where music is the protagonist. The rest was taken up by the excellent rum and beer served.
This is the first color work that this renowned photographer did in digital format with a simple little camera of just eight megabytes. Born in 1951, Díaz Burgos is an author with a clear vocation for humanistic, documentary and essay photography. His work has been exhibited in many countries.
