About Photographer

Tatiana was born in NY and raised in Barcelona. Before getting into photography she studied philosophy in Montpellier, American literature and filmmaking in Barcelona, followed by journalism studies at UCLA. She speaks several languages. While writing for publications in the US and Spain, she discovered photography and was seduced by the infinite possibilities provided by f-stops, shutter speeds and film emulsion. "I fell in love with catching the "moment". Making people look beautiful was initially easy for me and drew me in , but capturing the "essence" was the real challenge." A few years back, after much resistance,Tatiana turned to digital picture taking and if was instant infatuation. Tatiana has specialized in portrait photography shooting for publications in Europe and the U.S. Some of the magazines include Vogue, GQ, The London Telegraph, People En Español. She has completed advertising campaigns for Merck Pharmaceutical. In this exhibit, Tatiana continues to show us her portraits, this time not of people but Icebergs. She combines her love for travel, landscape photography and philosophy in these images of fluctuating and unstable ice sculptures. "They are here now and will melt tomorrow to rebuild again with the changing season, never to be the same again. The continuous passage of time and our human influence on nature." I have just closed by first Solo Art Show at Gallery169 in the Santa Monica Canyons on April 15th 2010. I was part of Fresh Fair Photo event at Bergamot Station on April 25th as well as Pro'Jeckt at Space 1520 in Hollywood for a projection show organized by MOPLA: Sustenance and Sustainability and I had a piece at the silent auction FOCUS on AIDS event on May 7th. She is also represented by Heater James Gallery in Palm Springs and is looking for east coast gallery representation.
