Born in Miami and trained in NYC. Peters worked with prestigious photographers such as Patrick Demarchelier, and shot editorials for Harper’s Bazaar, LIFE, Interview, Details, George, Vanity Fair and many more publications.
Upon returning to live in Miami Beach in 2012, Peters happened to revisit the Miami Marine Stadium, a landmark she had frequented as a child, Long abandoned. Jill Peters finds her inspiration in the quickly changing architectural landmarks of her youth, like the demolished Miami Herald building, an abandoned roller coaster or a neglected go-cart track. Shooting mostly from air, which allows her to find a new level of intrinsic beauty to otherwise overlooked structures, Peters has gone on to capture and document man’s wider imprint on nature. Whether it’s the graphic symmetry of urban architecture or the abstract choreography of the forms and hues of nature itself. Within this body of work, one can marvel at the worn wreckage of the past or the fragile resources of the present.
JUAN PABLO CASTRO
Frames that capture the transformation from the everyday life into another reality. Images that explore how the future will look. Colombian photographer Juan Pablo Castro presents a proposal that comes from the contemporary, but goes beyond what would be expected. His background as an industrial designer has made him interested in the little things in life that make a difference. With a fascination for color and shape, Castro translates his personal experiences into images that present characters, situations and stories, combining elements from the daily life under his distinctive perception, with a particular twist that makes each frame a piece of art. Industrial, eccentric, forward looking, Castro’s vision is a combination of different influences that are translated into deconstructed images. Castro has surrounded himself with art, inspiration and creative sources that have enriched his work and the way he perceives the world around him. Juan Pablo Castro creates images to express, not to impress.

Award-winning photographer and director Juan Lamarca graduated as a film director from Universidad del Cine located in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He has lived and worked in Palm Beach and New York for the past 10 years when he started a full-time career dedicated to photography, films, and advertising. Although Juan has done and continues to do many commercials, lifestyle editorials, and fashion jobs; fine art and travel photography has always been his main focus. His latest photography series envisions a duality between harmonic beauty and power of both horses and oceans, through a unique point of view. The horse portrait series is an abstract series of photographs of high-performance horses that captures the essence of the horses while concentrating primarily on the simplicity of the details. His ocean series portfolio is an intimate look at different places, capturing the feeling of the beach life and transporting the viewer around the world. The majority of Lamarca’s work is part of different private collections in the Hamptons, Palm Beach, Los Angeles, and Miami. His work is available in different art galleries and Interior design stores in New York, The Hamptons, Miami, Palm Beach, and California.
"In few photographers like Mauricio Velez does aesthetic become ethic. Every portrait scene is seamless. Every composition is an impeccable piece: the light, gesture, even the preference in models. Nothing can be discredited of the photographic style neither the clean technic. And for this aesthetic perfection the message lands to the viewer in it's pure state." Mauricio Velez- Was born and lives in Colombia He has been a photographer for 28 years and was trained at the European Institute of Design in Italy. Since then, he has worked on a very large number of projects in Latin America, the United States and Spain, offering, through his personal prism, images he means to refine the sensitivity and perception of the viewer towards religious icons, art and the human body, for example, in an attempt to unify them and elevate them to an aesthetic level that can either inspire or disturb, but whose intention is to confront the viewer with an image.
