Juan Carlos Velaz is an extremely talented artist who wants to show the Dominican Republic’s beauty though his photography artwork. His art-photography includes landscapes, wide shots of valleys, forests, slopes, coasts and close ups that generate subjective points of view with a high grade of abstraction where the organicity, the structures and the details take center stage in the eternal interaction between the micro and macro.
