Mariana Quevedo is both creator and communicator. Using the language of the visual rather than the verbal, she speaks to us in traces of thought captured through her lens and multi-layered forums. She is inspired by the past but moved to translate the present. She might begin with something as brief as a moment, something as simple as a color palette or something as concrete as an found image and end by leading us into an experience with the visceral and the ethereal.
Born in Lima, Peru and raised in Ohio, Mariana can trace her relationship with photography back to age 12. She was struck by the vividness of a candid from an SLR that her uncle had taken of her and her cousins playing in the backyard. You can playfully say that she became enamored with the study of light and shadow and the possibilities of the image after viewing those prints. Though her style and her technique have certainly evolved, Mariana continues on this study today.
