‘’I do not sell images. I sell moments’’
“Selling moments requires a combination of factors. You must have a very good eye, experience, the necessary equipment and the love for what you do…and I love photography”.
Thiago da Cunha was born in Luanda, Angola, in 1968. He lived in Lisbon, Portugal, as well as in Lima, Peru. He grew up in the Dominican Republic and has been a professional photographer for over 18 years. After a short stay in Freeport, Bahamas, he decided to move back to the Dominican Republic to open his own business.
He collaborates with advertising agencies, magazines and commercial organizations.
Thiago is the creator of the only live radio show for photographers in the Dominican Republic called ‘’Imágenes en la Radio’’ (Images in the Radio) which co-produces with Evelyn Espaillat. The radio show is the fusion of photography, the internet and radio. Enthusiasts call, tweet or chat from all over the globe during this one hour radio show.
Thiago has made solo exhibitions: “1999″ and “Damas de Santo Domingo”. He also has several collective exhibitions, both in Santo Domingo and Santiago. He worked for many years shooting the covers of ‘’En Sociedad’’ and later ‘’Ritmo Social’’, two very respected local magazienes.
“Intended consequences: Crus & Calsei” is his first book. It took 3 years in making.
