Here is an exclusive interview with Nina Pak, the Art Director / Curator, Staff Photographer for Miroir Magazine.
Q: What fascinates you in regard to the images you have been creating lately?
A: I find that I am drawn to reflections and shadows, mirrored images, textures and delicate details, anything that has potential for a story. Small objects from nature, little antique treasures, costumes that speak for themselves, something unique and wonderful.
Q: Symbolism seems to be a major component of everything you create, can you speak about this?
A: I have always been drawn to symbolic imagery, from ancient orthodox Icons to Tibetian Tankas, art that tells a story of the soul’s journey is of interest to me.

Q: Could you please tell me a little something about your history in the creative arts. When did you begin creating your arts? Did you have a formal school education or are you self-taught?
Jonathan Kane is an artist and photographer who lives and works in Naples, Florida. After pursuing undergraduate art degrees from the University of Florida and the San Francisco Art Institute, he embarked on a 15 year career in the financial industry before returning to his Florida roots to pursue art.
Jonathan’s interest in photography developed early on in high school. After graduation, he was a society photographer for the Naples Star newspaper. With a long time interest in portraits and the raw human figure, Jonathan adds color and texture to delve deep into the highly emotional imagery of his pieces. Kane does not plan his pieces before the creation process- he allows them to freely develop and come into existence entirely on their own.
