Limited Edition, Framed, Photographs Curated By Experts In The Visual Arts
Nava sells limited edition, framed photographs curated by our associate curators and an invited guest curator. Guest curators, renowned figures in contemporary art, ultimately determine the photographs to be included in each collection. Submitted and sourced photography projects (i.e. a series of related photographs) are sent to the guest curator. The edited set of projects sent back is the collection of photographs Nava promotes and makes available for purchase. Collections are released a few times per year.
