Horacio Reyes Páez (Montevideo, 1987)  is a Vienna based film director, photographer and musician. 


"His study is an harmonious amalgamation of process and practice. Seeking out moments of visual poetry, Paez's imagery is an example of his personal curiosities influencing his aesthetic direction.⁠ For this Uruguayan visual artist, striving to connect the physical with something more pensive and spiritual is a process that underpins his work.


Capturing moments that seem frozen in time, he invites the viewer to take a moment's pause." ⁠

"Visual poetry can be a form of healing, and to seek these moments through film, sound, or photography can make the audience experience a conscious moment full of personal intuition and oneness."

Interview for IGNANT (www.ignant.com)

From independent productions to bigger commissions, from Portraits & Fashion to Landscape or Architectural Photography, Reyes Páez accomplishes all his works with unique style & storytelling.

With his solid compositions, intriguing details, and cinematic angles, Páez gives the opportunity to reveal a beauty that often goes unnoticed. There is a fascinating eeriness and dream-like quality to his work. Both his images and film showcase a world thrown into a quiet chaos, which, despite its future being messy and uncertain, evokes feelings of serenity and purity. For Páez, his lens becomes an important emotional bridge to the past, and between him and the viewers.
