ABOUT ME

GRriveron02George Riverón was born in 1972 in Holguin, Cuba.  He established himself in Miami (Florida, U.S.A.) in 2004. His passion for photography started very early in his life, when he was taking courses at the Fine Arts Academy of his hometown. Shortly thereafter he moved to Havana and continued his studies in that city, at the Instituto Superior de Arte (Advanced Institute for Fine Arts). A few years later he received a Bachelor of Arts degree from that institution, with a major in Cinema, Radio and TV Direction. Since his arrival to the U.S. he studied Professional Photography at the Photo Art Academy, Miami Campus (where he is a professor) and at New York Institute of Photography.
