Jean "Gino" Miele's photographs explore the borderlands between fiction and reality, reflecting his lifelong interest in perception, spirituality, and mysticism. His images remind us that we create our own reality and moments of perfection are possible. Gino believes that every photograph is an act of transformation and the photographs we make tell us more about ourselves than about what was in front of the lens. His photographs have appeared in thousands of publications, and his original prints are exhibited and acquired by collectors worldwide. Gino's workshops empower students to realize their own photographic vision. This is his second year teaching with the Workshops.
