"Reality can effortlessly surpass fiction. I enjoy photographing the surrealism and beauty that surrounds me. Cuba surprises me each and every day: this country is full of contrasts. Documentary photography is my true love. I have a passionate affair with artistic photography. I look straight to the fathomless black and white of the human soul."

Sadiel Mederos Bermúdez


He has participated in group exhibitions organized by the Union of Journalists of Cuba in 2015 and the Salon of Erotic Art of Havana, Fayad Jamís gallery, 2017.
His work is included in Lake Forest College’s Madeleine P. Plonsker Collection of Contemporary Cuban Photography, USA, as well as belonging to other private collections in the United States, Spain, Mexico and Cuba.


Graduated as a journalist in 2009, he has done most of his photographic work with the purest documentary vision. He specializes in nudes, portraits and themes such as rural life in isolated hamlets, the LGBT community and the decline of the Cuban sugar industry, among others. He finds inspiration in the work of Dorothea Lange and Diane Arbus, always with an intimate and human approach.
