Born in 1961 in Brooklyn, Richard Silver lives and works in New York. He began to travel around the world in 2001 when he took up photography. His travels have been a source of inspiration for his art. He is particularly interested in depicting eminently touristic places and symbolic monuments. Little by little, he has perfected his photographic technique reaching a status of renowned landscape photographer. Since 2002 he has exhibited at the prestigious Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, followed by individual and collective exhibitions mainly in the United States.
