On Thursday, August 11, 2011, from 8 to 10 p.m., photographer Jordan Michael Zuniga will debut his latest works, Women in Cages, at Cafeina in Wynwood with a VIP cocktail reception to benefit People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). The exhibition explores the politics surrounding the treatment of animals, and his subjects are some of Miamiâ€™s most famous faces, including Brooke Hogan, Ines Rivero, Katrina Campins, Tracy Mourning, Michelle Pooch and Tara Solomon, to name a few. Each woman is captured as an artistic nude as part of PETAâ€™s â€œIâ€™d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Furâ€ campaign. Eighty percent of the proceeds from all sales of these photographic works will be donated to PETA. This powerful, sensual exhibition will be on display from Aug. 12 through Sept. 10.
About Jordan Michael Zuniga:
Growing up with wooden cameras as toys, and with a mother who is an artist and a father who has been a working photographer for more than 40 years, it is no surprise that Jordan today lives in Miami and is surrounded by beauty and creativity.
At age 19 with $700 in cash and a backpack full of ambition, Jordan jumped on a UK-bound plane with the intention of living in Europe, seeing the world and finding out where photography could take him. In Amsterdam, he quickly made friends with a local photographer who showed him what fashion photography looked like. Within a few months he was hooked. He soon began knocking on modeling agency doors and was eventually hired as a test photographer, and the rest is history.
Jordan has worked with many professional entities in the U.S. and abroad, including Fashion TV, Elite Model Management, Next, Ford Models, Front Management, MC2 Model Management, True Religion, ADT, the U.S. Navy, SiTV, Mercedes-Benz, Victoria’s Secret, Warner Bros., Selecta Magazine, Venue Magazine and Casa Casuarina.
Most days he can be found at his highly successful Red 1 Studios working with an array of clients. Jordan recently expanded his brand and scope of work to include philanthropic enterprises. Along those lines, he is currently involved with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, Miami Heart Gallery, Haitian American Tree Trust and Cameras for Kids, among others.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is the largest animal rights organization in the world, with more than 2 million members and supporters. PETA focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: on factory farms, in laboratories, in the clothing trade, and in the entertainment industry. The organization also works on a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of beavers, birds and other â€œpests,â€ as well as abuse of domesticated animals. PETA works through public education, cruelty investigations, research, animal rescue, legislation, special events, celebrity involvement and protest campaigns.
