Photographer and director Myriam Santos has been behind some of the most striking depictions of popular artists in the past two decades.
From the latest chart-toppers such as Andra Day, to legends like David Bowie, Steve Perry, Willie Nelson, Ozzy Osbourne, Jared Leto, Tanya Tucker, Gary Clark Jr., George Clooney, and Tommy Lee, Myriam’s art offers an intimate look at the entertainment industry’s most influential figures. Her career has spanned across all the major record labels, countless publications, and numerous ad campaigns. Recent campaigns include Diet Coke, Pandora Jewelry, and Billboard’s Women in Music.
As detailed in her book “David Bowie Live in New York”, Myriam was the first photographer invited on tour with the rock icon in two decades. Capturing Bowie backstage and in rehearsal, her portraits give American fans a unique perspective into one of pop culture’s most enigmatic personalities. Her work is on permanent exhibit at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas and featured at Minotti in Beverly Hills.
