Eduardo Javier García graduated from the Foreign Languages Pedagogical Institute of Havana in 2005. He also studied in the Antonio Díaz Peláez Art Academy, also in havana.
He started doing street photography in 2009, and found himself very motivated by the people in his first photographic images. Since then, Eduardo’s main photographic themes are documentary photographs that reveal the human condition. In 2012 he won an Honorable Mention in the “Daily Life “category in the First Edition of The Latin American Photography Prize. This recognition encouraged him to keep photographing in the streets of Havana, and motivated him to develop comprehensive photographic essays, and continue exploring social issues.
In 2014, Eduardo was recipient of an Honorable Mention in the Oso Bay Biennial (Weil Gallery at Texas A&M University, Corpus Christi, Texas), and in 2015, he was the recipient of a Photographic Scholarship at Santa Fe Photographic Workshops, where he attended the Project Workshop, taught by Whitney Johnson, Deputy Director from National Geographic.
In 2016 Eduardo won an Honorable Mention in the Photo Contest at Santa Fe Photographic Workshops, his series Home was a finalist in The Magnum Photography Awards of 2016, and in 2017-2018, he participated in a collective exhibit with other renowned Cuban and North American photographers at the Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles, CA. His photographs are in private collections in Argentina, Canada, France, and the United States of America.
