Abel Ernesto Rubio Estrada (December 3, 1973) is a photo-journalist for the Agencia de Información Nacional (AIN), which he first joined in 2009 as graphic editor. Rubio studied at the Enrique José Varona Pedagogical Institute in Havana, where he majored in English, and also studied Photography at the José Martí International Institute of Journalism.
He has carried out his artistic and journalistic activities at the same time. He was awarded First Prize for the best picture report during a media festival at the Abril Publishing House in 2006. His photographs have been exhibited in several collective shows and a solo exhibit (Ángulos) about the city of Havana at the Servando Cabrera Gallery in 2011.
In his own words: “My art is a reflection of the distorted perspective of everyday life in Havana with its multiple angles and nuances. Through the lens I try to expose the intensity of a dynamic city full of colors and dissimilar portraits”.
