IN THE SPOTLIGHT... JAVIER GOMEZ ACCLAIMED PHOTOGRAPHER AND ARTIST
Born in Panama City, Javier Gomez moved to New York City in 2005 and pursued what is now a successful career in photography and art. Being creative and implementing his ideas into works of art has always been a big part of Gomez life.
"I am a very visual person and since an early age traveling with my parents then as a flight attendant and living in other countries I had the passion for capturing those interesting subjects and moments of each trip and always took pictures of them. For me it was about documenting everything. After moving to the most creative city in the world I was able to translate that passion into a profession."
Gomez says that as a photographer it is all about "creating and bringing emotions out of the observer.
Most inspiration mainly comes from nature which is perfect on its own, I try to go out to nature weekly and just being there and connecting to it is where I get most of it; Also from books that I have read, from traveling and just walking in the city. It can just pop like that and you have a new book idea or a theme to work on."
Gomez has just released his latest photography book 'Dimensions' which was inspired in duality through metaphysics and sacred geometry utilizing both photography and symbols to expand a message of connectedness and unity of individuals with nature and others.
Artwork from this collection recently went on display at a charity event that he held benefiting RBRW and Strengthen Our Sisters. Artwork from his book is available for purchase and is still on display at Showbiz Software and Cafe - 19 W 21st Street New York City. (Between 5th and 6th Ave).
