Neil de la Flor is a photographer, author and educator who earned an MFA in Creative Writing at the University of Miami where he was a Michener Fellow.
He is the performing arts journalist for Knight Arts, the organizational arts blog maintained by the John S. and James L.Knight Foundation, and contributes to Miami-based arts bureau Art Burst Miami. His performing arts reviews, interviews and previews have appeared in The Miami Herald, The Miami New Times, WLRN.org and The Sun Post.
Neil is also the Executive Director of Reading Queer, a Miami-based organization dedicated to fostering and promoting queer literary culture in South Florida.
His work investigates the motion of objects through space without reference to the forces that caused their motion or created their impression or movement through space. The images make the invisible visible. Color becomes a catalyst for manifesting mood, energy and memory. Because the images capture motion, that sense of motion incorporates the passage of time. The soft focus emphasizes the transliminal and transitional stories that emerge in the spaces between here and there--between now and when.
