Artes Unidas is a place for artists to come and display their work as well as make themselves known to the public in order to strengthen the diversity of art. This month, we would like to share with you three artists who we feel deserve recognition. We hope that you enjoy their work.
Julio Perazza...A Photographer, a Father, a Son, and a loving Husband. Growing up in Southwest Detroit, much of his work was shot in his old neighborhood, yet his work was showcased to German audiences in Struttberg. His passion for photography led him to through life exploring it, as an artist does, and documenting it.We are all so blessed to have known him, and grateful for all he has left behind, so many wonderful pieces of art. These pieces offer a beautiful definition of who Julio was, where he came from, and what he saw in his life, through his artist's eye.
Julio was an artist who began his career as a photographer with the musical performance company "Up With People" and was the first artist to exhibit work at Casa de Unidad. He was committed to the people of Detroit, teaching photography at Casa de Unidad, SER Metro, LA SED and Henry Ford Community College. He worked for 11 years as a photographer for the Central Photo Unit of the Detroit Police Department.
