"In a few photographers like Mauricio Velez does aesthetic become ethic. Every portrait scene is seamless. Every composition is an impeccable piece: the light, gesture, even the preference of his subjet. Nothing can be discredited of the photographic style nor the clean technique. And for this aesthetic perfection, the message lands to the viewer in its pure state."
Mauricio Velez was born and lives in Colombia. He has actively worked as a photographer for 28 years. He trained at the European Institute of Design in Italy. Since then, Velez has worked on a very large number of projects in Latin America, the United States, and Spain. His work means to refine the sensitivity and perception of the viewer towards art and the human body. It is a way to elevate them to an aesthetic level that can either inspire or disturb, but whose intention is to confront the viewer with the image.
