Angélica Arbulú Spanish / Mexican, b. 1973


Through her fieldwork, Angélica has experienced first-hand the inequalities and uniqueness of our world, using her camera as a tool to make sense of her encounters. Her images are full of curiosity and compassion.

Spaniard born in Mexico, Angelica has lived on all four continents and is considered a cultural mix. Her quest is to capture the essence of the mundane. To make the ordinary seem unique.
"This is Angelica's strength, capturing people and places and making everyday life look beautiful and exotic. (Emma Fordham, artist) She sees photography as just the first step in the process, "sculpting" the image through the editing process to enhance its essence.



I focuse on people and on documenting everyday rituals that often go unnoticed. My choice of subjects is strongly influenced by my female experience and a conscious approach to everyday life.

With her photography she seeks to capture the essence of the mundane, to make the ordinary seem unique and the unique seem familiar. Her strength is capturing people and places, making the everyday seem beautiful and exotic.
