The founding members of the Miami Visual Collective are well recognized professionals in their fields of expertise. However, each one of them was drawn to photography in the first place by their passion and love for the visual arts.
This passion is alive and well, and each one of the MVC members is a true visual artist. They continue to explore the media with avid curiosity. Each member has presented several group and solo shows of their own work. See below for more info.
The Collective started operations in the summer of 2012. The official launch of the group was celebrated publicly with a great gallery exhibition entitled, ”Works in Progress,” held in a reputable gallery in Sunset, Miami.
New gallery shows are being planned for 2013. Stay tuned for more information.
