Venezuelan born Photographer/ Director Mariella Sosa began her photographic journey at a very early age: “I’ve always felt that nature and music were my early inspirations, and I still feel that today.” Mariella’s ability to capture a subject with her camera, be it an actor, singer, model, animal, or product, is simply unique, and the reason why she has been called “a miracle worker” of the lens.

There have been many highlights in Mariella’s career, but special mention must be made of a 1995 concert held in Guantanamo, Cuba, orchestrated by Emilio and Gloria Estefan, Andy Garcia, and mambo master Cachao. The concert not only sought to make known the plight of the Cuban refugees held in Guantanamo, but also provided them with some entertainment from their Cuban brothers and sisters. And Mariella was the only photographer on the premises who documented this historical event for the world to enjoy.
In an unbelievable turnaround, there will be a whole new Mariella Sosa Photography Exhibition; “Guantanamo” debuting for Art Basel Miami 2011 – Chock full of surprises, it all kicks off with a private reception on November 30th for the Art Basel Exhibition Opening Night Gala where guests will have the rare opportunity to “Meet the Artist”.
