Photographer: Maria Gabriela Rocha Gomez
Born in Venezuela and naturalized in Mexico. After practicing her career as a mechanical engineer for 24 years, she discovered her passion for photography through her training in Mexican Art Schools and her studies at the Contemporary Museum of Monterrey, making this hobby a new way of seeing life, the possibility of freezing the unrepeatable and simple moments of life in images, capturing the soul of what surrounds us, telling stories through her lens. She is undoubtedly a nature lover, passionate about travel and adventure, art and the traditions that define the different cultures that she has met on her journey around the world and on her own inner journey.
Her work has been exhibited in several group exhibitions in Mexico City, Monterrey, Puebla, Los Cabos, Shanghai/China and Saint Petersburg/Russia.
