Isabel Ulacia, was born in CDMX, within a family of artists, which influenced her vocation and interest in the plastic arts. His academic training in art evolution at the Universidad Iberoamericana where she studied Art History. Her first steps in the world of photography were taken with themes of architecture and portraiture. She studied at the Escuela Activa de Fotografía de Coyoacán and at the Escuela Kodak at CDMX.
She lived for a while in Puerto Rico, where she studied at the Escuela de Artes Plásticas del Viejo San Juan. There she discovered a taste for dramatic, hard and soft light contrasts. The teacher John Betancourt, photographer and Puerto Rican artist, was the one who guided the search for a new language within photography, venturing into automatic portraits.
In her return to Mexico he began to work with the water reflections. Water is important on the planet, vital for the human being and for the ecosystem, where there is no awareness of its depletion. Through art Isabel expresses her interest in this subject, using the abstraction of the shapes that a dreamlike plasma carries. Her language has as antecedents the European impressionist movement, cubism and other currents of art history. Here is «Agua que cae del cielo».
