ANA PAULA ALVAREZ
Studied photography in Escuela Activa de Fotografía, Mexico City. She had previous visual communication studies and ended up working in advertising agencies for a few years until she finally went full into photography as an independent.
Her main focus has been landscape, predominantly through various sailing trips due to the family’s tradition which started with her grandfather in Mexico’s Pacific coast in the early 1970s. It was her father who introduced her as a child to the art and techniques of photography, time and experiences narrowed her interest into documentary photography as a narrative and storytelling track that makes visible the aesthetic, social and sensitive criss-crossings derived from the symbiotic relationship between man and nature.
Her aesthetic exploration reveals the chromatic phenomena that is perceptible in dynamic surfaces that come into contact with the movement of natural light.
