Sharon Alviz

A

s a photographer Sharon Alviz reveals the thoughts of humanity, creating uninhabited compositions on repetitive surfaces. She seeks to explore the beauty behind what is seen, transforming it into another possibility. Colour and geometry are two major influences for Alviz, seen latterly in her editorial project ‘Plastic Soul’, which explores the conscience required by the planet to reduce plastic consumption. In this series the geometric shapes of the landscape become an intervention to the asymmetric plastic sphere which humans inhabit, where thoughts are accumulated and transformed into action. Her perspective transforms chaos

into beauty, the vivid colours of cloth and sky vibrating in the dialogue between the figure and what she sees. Currently living in Puerto Colombia, Alviz’s photographic career has seen her working for the History Channel, Mercedes Benz, and the Social Protection Ministry, before starting her first editorial projects in 2006. Recently she has been working on more personal contemporary projects, where she reflects her new thought perspective, creating beauty where she could not see it before. sharonalviz.com info@sharonalviz.com
