About

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 by Esfera Photo. My fine art work is represented by The Chicago Art Source Gallery.
