Adriana Claudia Sanz was born in Buenos Aires in 1970 and has lived in Chubut, Patagonia, Argentina since she was very young, where she developed a strong contact with nature. She graduated in Biochemistry and later obtained a Master’s Degree in Environment, which allowed her to dedicate herself to caring for it, an activity that she has been carrying out for more than two decades. As part of her work, she must record the components of the ecosystem, its characteristics, alterations, evolution, and that is where she discovers her other concern, nature photography.
Today she is completely dedicated to both passions. Her periodic trips are intense photo sessions, where she photographs to discover, immortalize, sensitize, because she believes in the power of the image as a conservation tool, since we love what we know and only take care of what we love.
In her photographs, she seeks to dignify the photographed subject, finding those unique moments of connection that allow her to convey the feelings of her photographed subject to the viewer, trying to establish communication between them. On the other hand, she incorporates in each image her artistic vision, reflecting her interpretation of reality and not reality itself.
Her passion for this activity has led her to work actively in organizations related to nature photography (Argentine Association of Nature Photographers «AFONA», Natural Portfolio), in congresses, as a jury of prestigious international competitions, in exhibitions and book dissemination and magazines. She has been the winner in 2020 of the Animal Portrait category of the Golden Turtle and Nature Photographers of the Year (NPOTY) contests, of the biennial Montphoto grant in 2021, Highly Commended in the Biodiversity category of the 2022 María Luisa Memorial Contest, and Highly Commended in the Composition and Forms category of ASFÉRICO 2023.
