Javier Gomez has his own vision of the world when he looks behind the lens of his camera. Blurring the lines between nature and abstract; he is able to go through the gamut of color, volume and texture creating images that are otherworldly. His proclivity towards this process is the key to understanding why his photography is so hypnotic and pleasant.
Documentaries from Panama, Paris, Tokyo, New York and Spain reflect his experiences, as well as, the way he loves to think about life, art and the world.
He has had exhibitions in New York at the Jacob Javits Center, Inventory, and Bogardus Mansion in Paris at La Maison des Etats-Unis in Tokyo at Cassina. in Florida at the Interlachen Gallery in Winter Park; He also has two monographic books, “Dimensions” and “Visual Vibrations”.
With all that Javier has accomplished it comes as no surprise that the art world is keeping a close watch on his trajectory. His clients include art collectors and personalities such as Bill Clinton, Pele, Colin Cowie, Samuel Botero and Thom Filicia.
Javier is also socially conscientious. He is involved in many non-profit organizations like Real Beauty Real Women, to help and rehabilitate children who have suffered from child abuse. He also supports other charitable organizations such as Icazu and the American Parkinson Disease Association. Additionally, he runs classes in which he teaches adults photography, while motivating them to develop their artistic side.
