SSF 2016 Featured Photographer Luna Palazzolo

Argentinean artist Luna Palazzolo, demonstrated a connection to art from an early age. First it was with oil paintings, and then it evolved into photography at the age of 14.
Spending most of her childhood at her mother’s design company, it’s only natural that her artistic style is heavily influence by fashion. With a very vast imagination, Luna’s work pushes cultural standards and society’s notion of sexuality, making it thought provoking. She has been showered with awards and life changing opportunities to learn under masters for both her visual arts and photography. Luna has photographed for international magazines, collaborated with local artists in Argentina and Miami, and has worked on erotica projects that have resulted into beautiful works of art recognized by many in the arts community. Her current deep rooted inspiration lies in the transformative and growing art scene in Miami. She hopes to become one of Miami’s staple star artists.
