Rima Photography
Profile:
Rima studied photography at the University of Pittsburgh and attended Parsons the New School Design in NYC. Recently, she furthered her research by obtaining her photographic technology degree from the Southeast Center for Photography. Currently Rima is a NYC based freelance photographer.

My goal as a photographer is to become immersed in the creative process which is defined by the natural progression of concept, inspiration, emotion, spontaneity, and decision. Art can be made beautiful or dirty and either way, the inspired moment is transparently confrontational and magnetic. The process is organic between subject and photographer, whether shooting a model or documenting a war. The direct emotional involvement targets the senses, a deliberate promotion of the aesthetic.

Solo exhibition, V Groove Gallery, Orlando, FL
“Nude Night” exhibition, Orlando, FL
"Fashionista" exhibition, Orlando Museum of Art, Orlando, FL
