From the social network Facebook, the institution shared an audiovisual, which shows pieces signed by the Cubans Juan Carlos Alom, Marta Maria Perez Bravo, Rene Peña and Manuel Piña.

The exhibition includes the works Misael y La Republica, by Alom; Solitario, from the series El Ladron, by Peña; Aguas Baldias, by Piña and the photograph Cuanto encontro para vencer, by Perez Bravo.

In this way, the entity joins the international celebration for those who turn everyday life into art, testify with their lenses the history of the people and seduce with each click of the shutter.

” Since its appearance, photography has been considered a historical record par excellence, due to its unusual immediacy to the true fact and the transcendent event,” said the museum’s specialist Delia Maria Lopez a few years ago, while she pointed out its value as a language for the construction of syntax and the foundation of ideals.

Every August 19 is an opportunity to remember the origin of this aesthetic expression by the French inventor and artist Louis-Jacques Daguerre, who presented to the French Academy of Sciences, on this day in 1839, a device capable of capturing images: the daguerreotype.

Instituted in 2009 by the Australian photographer Korske Ara, the day invites people to share images on social networks, whether portraits of people or captures of charitable causes, images in the middle of nature or in large cosmopolitan cities.
