Guadalupe Ruiz

January 11, 2011

So it’s January 11th and I should almost be arriving in Bogotá assuming all went well.

Guadalupe Ruiz mixes portraits, interiors, landscapes and architecture in and around Bogotá. The same people pop up in various series. Perhaps they are her family but they seem more like actors in noir-ish telenovelas put out by her own personal TV studio.

Ruiz is from Colombia but currently resides in Switzerland. Surely the best part about moving to another country is being able to register a domain name like lupita.ch !! It almost makes me want to register tomasito.co. It’s available. I just checked.

    Many country domains don’t require residency.


  2. Hey Thomas, I really like the work of Guadalupe Ruiz.
    I’m also from Bogota, do you know where to find more of her photographs.

    Thanks.
