Right when I first got to Colombia, I was at a bit of a loss as to what to write about on this blog. Googling the term “Colombia Contemporary Photography” turned up this exhibit in the UK from which I then discovered the work of artist, illustrator and photographer Maria Isabel Rueda.
These portraits are all titled ‘Reves’ although there is no additional text to the series. Rueda has other portrait series which are more straightforward in their categorization of their subjects; goths, beach goers, tourists covered in mud [it’s a Colombia thing]. I liked these portraits the best however. I’d recommend taking a tour through Rueda’s flickr stream as it contains a rich and varied sample of her many projects.
