Galeria Adelmo is proud to present a retrospective exhibition of black and white photographs by Miami-based photographer William Riera. The exhibition will open with an artist’s reception on Friday, May 26th from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm and it will be on view until June 28th.

As described by the artist, at the present time most of his body of work is produced in color, but William acknowledges that the images he best connect with are those that once stripped of their colors make the viewer to pause and to look closely, accentuating their form, texture, and overall soul, proving that a photograph without color can be captivating.

The photographs in this exhibition are a selection of the artist’s impressive black and white photography portfolio that encompasses photos taken from his early beginnings when he was only shooting film up to the current days when he excels in digitally William Riera was born in 1967 in Santiago de Cuba, Cuba.
