Director Biography - Ramon Brito

Hi, Ramon Brito from NYC here. I am Dominican-American, a father, a student, and a devout servant of the community.

While I wouldn’t dare call myself a ‘creative individual’, I do admit to having a seemingly unquenchable thirst for creative expression. The media did change over time – my teens and early twenties were dedicated to endless hours of dance rehearsal, performances, and choreography…probably the reason I am still obsessed with rhythm and lines to this day.

Photography is a more recent lucky encounter, from my first trip to Europe a few years ago. Enthralled by all the small nuances of local culture and my iPhone’s memory maxed out from all the shots taken, I returned to the ‘Concrete Jungle’ determined to find ways to capture the uniqueness and locality of each place and moment I experienced.

I like shooting street, landscapes and portraits - places near and far, people and buildings, motion and stillness. I also love to play with colors, to draw out the surreal in what surrounds us.

I'd like to share with you the emotion each photo has evoked in me - because ultimately, life is better when it's shared.
