thePhototheque


the Original Phototheque's Permanent Collection preserves artworks by a group of artists, -mostly born in Cuba-,  that work in the South Florida area and beyond. They are  refugees, asylum seekers, and parolees.  We help those immigrants by providing them with artistic projects to participate and interact.




*In 2012, the Cuban American Phototheque Foundation became incorporated and organized its first Board of Directors.  The CAPF WAS officially recognized as a 501 (c) (3) not for profit institution. As a nonprofit organization the Foundation will be supported by donations, grants, print sales, memberships, support services, educational programming, and workshops.

were born in the US, Canada, and different countries across Latin America. Their artworks put together are example of how our area is a melting pot where different cultures find common ground, since most of them were shown in our event in South Florida. The ensemble of works in our Permanent Collection also exemplifies how contemporary artists are applying new technologies to their work, while on the other hand some of them keep working with the traditional analog photographic B/W process, -which is the gelatin-silver print method- at the difference of digital processes.
