NORMAN MAYERS is a visual artist and art director whose recent projects explore the relationship between creative expression and cultural diversity. After studying art direction & photography in NYC he began his career as an Art Director and Graphic Designer before focusing on photography.

Several years of working on projects around the world lead to developing a personal style that is a unique and honest approach to portraiture. The combination of using only available light, his 'art director's eye' and a natural talent for revealing the essence of his subjects have earned him numerous creative awards and international recognition including being named creative director of the year for Latin America & the Caribbean.
