I am a portrait and fine art photographer with roots in documentary photography. The alias “Amariliz Photography” is basically a personal search for beauty in a chaotic world…
Most of my portfolio is made on medium- and large format film. The limitations of using 4×5 sheet film presents a challenge. It slows down the process; I must think carefully about every frame, consider the composition carefully and direct my models before pressing the shutter. Whilst I restrict myself with regards to my tools and materials, I also allow myself to improvise and to collaborate with my subjects. I value my models input and allow them to be themselves, shaping their bodies into a strong, classic and balanced composition. The choice of black and white film adds a graphic simplicity to the images.
