Photographer, mixed media artist, interior designer, and life coach Maru Ulivi specializes in Dream Building. She studied Digital Photography, Documentalist, and Lighting, as well as research workshops in Photography, Photographic Narrative, and Visual Discourse in Venezuela, the United States, Argentina, and Brazil.
In 2017, she wrote her first photo book Cages where she interviewed more than two hundred women of different nationalities, ages, and social strata who shared their testimonies. Her vision of art is associated with internal and external transformations driven from the creative act and the power to connect susceptibilities.
She is currently developing the project Callar duele más in which she expands the research of her first photobook. The work focuses on women that have continued through reflection and exploration the point of venturing into the use of other formats, taking photography as a support and base. It incorporates collage and sewing, achieving images that challenge and open discussions around women's visions about themselves, their body, sexuality, and limitations (social, psychological, religious, and cultural) through an intimate and deep approach with portraits and nudes assembled with objects and landscapes, images cooked and intervened as re-readings, a summation of cracks, patches and darning in a kind of metaphor of life that makes its way despite difficulties and discovers new beauties.
