ICE

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 EspaƱol. 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."
