Since very early in her life Yani Pedroza has had a passionate and exigent creative mind. Right after her dad gave her a Lumix digital camera it was only a matter of time before she chose photography as her medium to express her ideas. To date, she is a professional fine art and commercial photographer from The Savannah College of Art and Design hence her passion for color appreciation, composition control, and conceptualization are key elements in her photographs. Additionally, as a result of being born in Venezuela and moving to the United States, she combines her down-to-earth roots with her purposeful photographic aesthetic to cope with the political, social, and personal issues that happen every day back home. Her photographs about Venezuela speak for her and millions of Venezuelans who have had fled their homes.
