Pedro Abreu's photography and paintings originate from everyday life and the experiences he remembers. He draws inspiration from his immediate surroundings and shoots just at the right moment to capture the mystical momentum rather than the narrative. His motives are of unknown protagonists at non-places. In the moment of taking a picture, the situations seem to arise spontaneously, which in combination with his working methods makes Pedro Abreu photography authentic. His documentary character is undeniable. Pedro has a clear distinction from photojournalism because his photographs incorporate artistic composition with a shifted and often non-linear focus. Where the street has a clear narrative, his personal view is more abstract and even opaque at times. Context is deliberately absent or left vague, allowing the viewer to create their own reality. Following Pedro Abreu photography is always fascinating; his work is spontaneous, mysterious, intimate, witty, and sad at the same time. He earned his BFA at the Cooper Union School of Art and Architecture in New York City. As an independent artist, Pedro has exhibited in numerous solo and group shows internationally including the Independants Salon des Artistes in Paris and Museo del Barrio in New York. At the time He became part of the Semi-Annual show at the Bronx Museum in New York. In his newest project "Ghosts in the Streets" is a series of images accumulated over the years. The photos focus on the interactions between people and their immediate surroundings. "It's difficult the way I experience my photographs, but it always comes back to the fact that I am driven by the need to create images that challenge one's sense of reality. The street experience affords us the chance for new beginnings. I hope that in some way my pictures can help us question and expand our own ghostly visions." "Most Impressive is the work of Pedro Abreu, a photographer and painter whose images date from the seventies till present and reveal a consistently astute eye for spatial surprises, saturated colors and the illusionary aspects of everyday life. A prime example is with its overhead view of a man and a woman playing chess and dog on the roof of a New York City apartment building." Art review: Roberta Smith -New York Times
