Manuel Delaflor
Philosopher and Visual Artist
Manuel won two photography contests in Mexico, one organized by Motorola when their first phone with serious photographic capabilities was introduced, which was in 2008. The second one was run by the Anglo Mexican Foundation in collaboration with "Cuarto Oscuro" (the most important photography magazine in Mexico) in 2010. In January 2016 he won the "CAMARADAS" contest in London, and then the photo was taken to an exhibition in Mexico. This was run by the Mexican Embassy in the UK, and was called the "Jewel of the Crown" of the activities related to the cultural exchange between both countries during 2015. In 2017 he won the FFIEL, International Competition and later in the year he was asked to be a juror for a photography competition run by the Mexican Embassy in the United Kingdom.

Manuel has had exhibitions in Mexico, Canada, Spain, France, Hungary, Germany and the United Kingdom. His latest exhibition was in Budapest in November 2017, as part of a Mexican Festival and all the profits are going to be destined to help the people in Mexico after the devastating earthquake earlier this 2017.
His work is part of private collections in Mexico, Spain, The United States, Germany, The United Kingdom and France.
As a philosopher, he spent several years at the UNAM (National Unversity of Mexico) Studying philosophy and psychology. For 5 years he was the right hand to the brilliant Mexican Scientist Jacobo Grimberg, studying the electrophysiological correlatives of the conscious experience. He was also a member of the UNAM Cognitive Science Group. He left academia disappointed with a system that forces researchers to spend enormous amounts of time to simple get the needed resources to continue their research, and become a independent philosopher.
