Sharon Alviz was born in Barranquilla Colombia.
She grew up near the ocean, so she can easily connect with spaces that represent expansion, repeated atmosphere, lines, and nature.
Her photographic path began when she enrolled at the faculty of marketing and advertising and discovered she wanted to be a photographer during her first film developing class. Upon completing her career, Sharon moved to Bogota to study photography at the French Academy of the Image. She continues with other studies in fashion photography at the Bloom College, and a few years later, she takes a different path and becomes a self-taught architecture photographer.
Her subject of interest is the power of the mind and consciousness:
"Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; Who looks inside, awakes” Carl Gustav Jung.
/The images she captures are based on these thoughts/
Sharon gets a lot of inspiration from the Architecture photographer Julius Shulman and his great sensitivity towards geometry in contemporary architecture. Jacques Henry Lartigue is also another wonderful source. He is known as the Happy Snapper. This joyful state of mind is reflected in all of his work through the colour hues, simplicity, and styling.
In 2008, Sharon got her first international publication on the “Men’s Journal Magazine” in New York. Her work is also been published on the “Ministry of Culture’s Book”, “Life and Work of Petrona Martinez”, and “A tribute to the African Palenque Culture”. Other magazine publications from Colombia are Revista Cabriola, Revista Dinero, and Revista Elenco. In 2019, her contemporary projects were published internationally in some magazines including “Aesthetica”, “Inside Artist”, “Spotlight”, and “U+I”.
Sharon is based in Puerto Colombia, but she often travels professionally for work.
