The excellent group exhibition I’m part of in Washington DC, VAIVEN, has been making waves. The six photographers in the show are all Spanish born or of Spanish heritage (like myself) and our work reflects influence from both Spain and the US. The exhibit was curated by the Embassy of Spain.
Also covering the show have been:

...and other press:
At the opening reception of my solo show at Elmhurst College a few months ago, reporter Haleema Shaw interviewed me for Vocalo 90.7 FM (CHI) for the show Morning Amp hosted by Brian Babylon and Molly Adams. Have a listen: Urban Artistry: Haleema Shaw talks to photographer Xavier Nuez
Talking a book, maybe
I’m developing an Alleys and Ruins book with author and reporter J. Michael Welton, who has written about art, architecture and design for The New York Times, Interior Design and The Washington Post. He also writes and edits the online magazine Architects + Artisans. In this digital age, there are new obstacles to publishing a real paper book, but we believe that an Alleys and Ruins coffee table book, with big lush photos on quality paper would look fantastic and would be a big hit!
To push this ahead, in today’s day and age, we need sponsors. I’ll be putting a proposal together for anyone interested on how you can help get this published, while getting a lot back in return.
More on this later, but feel free to email me with questions, ideas …. a sponsorship?!
