Ricardo Jiménez

Born in Caracas in 1951, Jiménez began to have contact with photography in the mid-70s. He trained as a photographer at the Frías de Caracas School, the Neumann Design Institute, Sir John Cass School of Art and the Bournemouth and Poole College of Art and Design, among other centers.

In 1978 he completed his first series, Inscapes, which shows urban interior landscapes. A year later he exhibited his first photographs with the Group Encounters at the Gallerie Manchester.

In 1982, she participated in the collective exhibition Los Venezolanos, curated by María Teresa Boulton and Paolo Gasparini at the Photographer's Gallery in London. And two years later his work is part of the collective exhibition 49 years of artistic photography in Venezuela, at the São Paulo Museum of Art, Brazil, organized by Boulton. In 1985 he made his first solo exhibition and that same year he received the Luis Felipe Toro Photography Prize.

From that moment he combines advertising and editorial photography with collective and individual exhibitions.

He collaborates with magazines such as Manager of Venezuela, Horizontes de Avensa, Complot, Ocean Drive, Espacio, architectural magazine and Global Finance of New York, among others.

His photographs are part of the Banco Mercantil collections (Caracas); Ignacio and Valentina Oberto (Caracas); National Library Autonomous Institute (Caracas); Stanislas and Leticia Poniatowski (Bogotá), Alexis Fabry (Paris) and Archivo Fotografía Urbana (Caracas).
