About

Hi! I am Zuania Muñiz-Meléndez, an art director and creative still life photographer for advertising, editorial, and illustrations. My liking for visual arts has nourished my profound love of beautiful, poetic, and highly technical images. This passion has defined my style as one that is concept-driven, design-like, and art-inspired.

As a director and photographer, I am devoted to teaming up with determined and dauntless brands, magazines, and artists that want to create content that engages and excites.
