Lissette Solorzano is a Cuban photographer whose work predominantly captures everyday life in Cuba, whether children playing in the street, a storm moving past the coast, or the nation’s rich architectural history. Other series explore homelessness within New York City, photographed on-site over two months, and a collaborative project with other Cuban and American photographers. Solorzano is also noted for her elaborate installations, using foreign objects and sound to enhance her photography.
Solorzano has shown widely throughout South and Central America, as well as the United States, most recently in Humanity Today at Jenkins Johnson Gallery in San Francisco, CA and The Photography Show by AIPAD in New York. Her work has been featured in Europe as well, and she regularly participates in the Havana Biennial. She has won numerous awards and accolades, including a 2002 UNEAC price during the Bienal of Photograph. She will be featured at the 2017 Florence Biennale. Solorzano’s work is in public collections throughout Cuba, the United States, and Italy.
