My name is William Riera. I’m a Miami-based photographer that for the last 17 years have been devoted to the art of photography. Photography became my passion and way of self-expression after working as a computer software analyst and programmer for some years. I have exhibited my work in several local art galleries and other alternative art venues where I have been selected as finalist in several juried photography exhibitions like Capturing Coral Gables from the Coral Gables Museum, Miami Photo Salon, and also I was selected as “Best in Show” in the Photo-voice Exhibition, organized by the non-profit organization Celebrate Diversity Miami. My artwork has also been showcased in several collective exhibitions in Miami, Vero Beach, Florida, and recently in Bay Village, Ohio. In addition, my work has been featured in Coral Gables TV, El Nuevo Herald, Dominicana en Miami magazine, and the Cuban-based e-magazines Fullframe and Quinqué, and Portuguese-based e-magazine Fotographic Mercadillo. My photography was also featured in the XVII Yearbook of the Literary Magazine “Baquiana” participating with their staff in their presentation at Miami’s Spanish Cultural Center and at the XXXVIII edition of Mexico City’s Palacio de la Minería International Book Fair. Currently, I’m pursuing a course about Photographic Criticism and Curatorial Studies taught by Página en Blando, a photography school located in Mexico City. I'm one of 2017's Selected Winners of AI-AP Latin American Fotografía 6 contest.
