My passion for photography was born while I was studying Political Science and working with a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) doing social work with different communities in Medellín, Colombia. It was during this time that I discovered the transformative power of photography.
For me, it's not just about capturing colors or creating visually pleasing images. It is a powerful medium that allows me to raise awareness and foster societal changes. My goal is to use my work to create spaces for questions and people that are often overlooked.
Photography helps me to transcend the boundaries of language, disclose social injustices and give a voice to those who suffer from them. It has become my way of relating to the world, and a means of creating new realities. Through my lens, I can fabricate aesthetics and capture the essence of social issues.
Born and raised in the city of Medellín, Colombia, she decided to study political science at a very young age. At the age of 17, she began working with an NGO in the city that was trying to help the population displaced by the political conflict. It was there that she discovered her passion for photography when she realized the limitations of language to narrate the reality that she saw. She thus began her studies in Photographic Production in said city where she would later present her first photographic exhibition with a series of portraits of Homeless people.
In 2021 she made the decision to travel to Spain to start a Master's in Fashion and Advertising Photography, and in 2022 she moved to Luxembourg where she worked as a creative photographer for a company focused on sustainability for a year and a half.
She is currently dedicated to artistic creation and exploration, making her work available to the questions and people that are often overlooked in society and using it as a means to raise awareness of social problems and injustices.
