Project Background and Description

Authors Portraits LV is an Art Exhibition of local Las Vegas Authors, created by world renown Photographer, David de Hannay and local Author, Andres Fragoso, Jr. In a combined effort will display Las Vegas Authors through Art Exhibits in Las Vegas, across the country, and around the world. Each Authors Portraits LV captures the genre, personality, and character of each author. Thus creating an existential experience for the art enthusiast and literary aficionado.
