Artist's Career

Part of Sharon Castellanos’ work chases the intention to transfigure situations through documentary photography, avoiding showing reality as evidence. Her work is evocative and explores the representation to be seen from the imagination and even fantasy. The themes are connected with her own exploration in the mountains, daily rural life and the manifestation of  nature.

Born in Lima in 1989 – Live in Cusco, Peru

With a formation background divided between photography workshops and graphic design studies, she worked four years as a photojournalist in a local media. Currently, she is a freelance photographer.
