Description

“Maurice Sánchez’s incandescent photographs are wonderful intimate glimpses of the hearth and soul of Santo Domingo…a hallucinatory, incandescent, irreverent journey that captures the nation’s immense hope, endless resistance and delirious play” – Junot Diaz, 2008 Pulitzer Prize Winner, on Flow Tropical

Flow Tropical is the result of a collaboration between Ediciones de a Poco and the Dominican artist and photographer Maurice Sanchez who has been documenting for many years the paintings made as advertisements on the walls of food and beer shops, pool and dance clubs, beauty parlors and clothes retailers in cities and small towns all around the Dominican Republic. In addition to the images taken by Maurice Sánchez, the book includes an essay by the Dominican writer and cultural critic Miguel D. Mena.

Maurice Sánchez (Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, 1972) is a visual artist and photographer. His individual and collaborative works as a member of the artistic collectives Shampoo and Biscuit, have been shown in biennials and exhibitions in the Museum of Modern Art of Santo Domingo, at the San Juan Poly/Graphic Triennial in Puerto Rico, at the Havana Museum in Cuba and at the Brooklyn Museum of New York. He has also curated the exhibitions Arte Urbano Sarmiento, Tipicográfico (gráfica popular dominicana) and Gráfica Independiente Dominicana 2000-2010. His photographs, regularly published on his personal blog, www.theoldsystem.tumblr.com, are an eloquent record of the varied expressions of contemporary street culture of the Dominican Republic.
