FLUYE arises from giving truth to the dream of the blurred image of a river, mentally captured when in 1995 the Cartagena photographer Juan Manuel Díaz Burgos was on his way to San Juan de la Maguana, near the border with Haiti. Several more years had to pass, so that in 2009 the photographer had the opportunity to make a portrait of two Haitian brothers in a riverbed, so that he would understand that with that photo he was possibly paying off an outstanding debt. For Díaz Burgos, that image acted as an accomplice in his interest in knowing and interpreting how the Dominican interacts within his environment, and specifically the river. From 2011 to 2019 the photographer toured the island with one goal, to meet him. And even though his landscapes are spectacular, this is not the objective of his gaze or interest: It is the life that he generates around him, which really interests me. The river as a meeting point with play, work, rest or the redemption of souls.
