George Riveron was born in Cuba. He established himself in Miami (Florida, U.S.A.) in 2004. His passion for photography started very early in his life, when he was taking courses at the Fine Arts Academy of his hometown. Shortly thereafter he moved to Havana and continued his studies in that city, at the Instituto Superior de Arte (Advanced Institute for Fine Arts). A few years later he received a Bachelor of Arts degree from that institution, with a major in Cinema, Radio and TV Direction. Since his arrival to the U.S. he studied Professional Photography at the Photo Art Academy, Miami Campus (where later he was a professor) and at New York Institute of Photography. He lives in New York from October 2013.
Riveron has also published several books of poetry. He considers that his creative experience as a poet has allowed him to give a special, meaningful background to many of his endeavors as a photographer. Some of his pictures have been chosen as covers of published books.
Also, he works as a web designer, and he has his own publishing house: Bluebird Editions.
