Xiomaro, an internationally exhibited photographer, is showcasing two new exhibits for Hispanic Heritage Month and continuing through the new year.

MORRISTOWN, N.J. - eMusicWire -- "Xiomaro's GIANT Portfolio" presents 43 large-scale photographs revealing the breadth and scope of his career.  The collection includes his many National Park Service commissions and his independent personal work.

National Park photographs offer rare views of historic rooms, sites, and artifacts of iconic American political leaders and cultural figures.  Landscape and wildlife images provide an organic counterpoint.  Personal work includes street photography capturing the daily lives playing out in a variety of ephemeral scenes.  Melancholic images suggest alienation and loneliness in a city of millions, contrasted with personal interactions of joy, wonder, and creativity.

The exhibition is presented in the Atrium Gallery's 4th floor within the Morris County Administration and Records Building at 10 Court Street and runs from September 28, 2023 to January 9, 2024.

"Xiomaro's Street Haunting" presents 16 candid photographs that explore the gritty, kinetic swirl of energy and diversity in New York City.  The exhibit was inspired by Virginia Woolf's 1927 essay, "Street Haunting," a literary sketch about the ordinary and transient scenes of daily life.  In Xiomaro's photographs, dramatic, weird, and ghostly moments are captured.  Despite the hallucinatory feel, the images were not manipulated with Photoshop or filters.

Xiomaro's solo exhibition is presented in the Starlight Gallery at the Mayo Performing Arts Center (MPAC) as part of a Hispanic Heritage Month celebration with concerts by the Gypsy Kings, the Broadway stars of "Hamilton," and Disney's "Coco" live-to-film screening.  The artist, of Cuban-Puerto Rican descent, notes that his "Street Haunting" exhibit also overlaps with Halloween, the Mexican community's anticipation of The Day of the Dead, and diminishing daylight as we turn back the clocks.  "So I thought it was fitting to select my darker street photographs for the show."

MPAC is located at 100 South Street and the exhibition is on view from October 16 to November 28, 2023.
