Manny Verdecia was born in Havana, Cuba, in 1962. He graduated from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, Florida in 1992, with a Degree in Fashion Photography. Since an early age, Manny was lured to the power of the image and the spontaneous representation of reality that his curious lens would later capture.


Through the years, he has worked with several models and acting agencies, but he has channeled his passion mostly in pursuit of that unique split second in which people reveal their true selves at fleeting, ephemeral moments of their everyday life.

In his latest 2010 exhibit "Expressions of Avignon" (held at Zu Galeria Fine Arts, Miami), Manny illustrates an unforgettable summer spent in this beautiful town in the south of France, a magic city where popes once lived and where his keen camera registered the candid human expressions and gestures of popular artists on its streets.


Manny Verdecia currently lives in South Beach.
