I mainly use color and black and white photography. I like to experiment with light and shadow effects, and the different paper textures.
My name is Marcela Rodríguez. I was born in Bogotá, Colombia in the 70s.
Teaching, art and mathematics have been my great passions, but until very recently, after a long time working in other areas, I decided to explore the art of photography.
My work simply seeks to show the way I see the world, the creation of God and the passage of man in his process of transformation of the environment.
That is why my works include many natural, urban and architectural landscapes, as well as many shots of the sky and the sea in different paintings.
I am inspired by life, creation, the development of vital processes, everyday situations, the creativity of other people. It inspires me to know that we are in this world to enjoy and take care of it, and in part that is what I want to project in some of my photographs: the world is beautiful, but we must take care of it so that we can continue enjoying its beauty and everything it gives us .
My approach to the plastic arts has been mainly empirical, and I study non-formally with friends and family artists, to complement my education as an educator.
I have experimented with stained glass, looms, drawings and cartoons, working with recyclable material and photography.
In 2003 I won the prize for the best cartoon in an internal competition of the institution where I was working.
