Isabelle Muñoz exhibit
Isabelle Muñoz presents her photographs on the theme of dancing in an exhibit entitled Zoom on the Body which takes place at the Beaux Art school in Nîmes. In this context, the artist's work and photo development techniques are presented. The photographer briefly talks about her relationship with the body and with sensuality.
Born in Barcelona in 1951, Isabel Muñoz took an interest in photography at a very young age. Starting in Madrid, her studies soon took her to New York where she developed her skills in different photographic techniques, but it was mainly platinum and albumen printing that became her speciality.
From native Ethiopian warriors to Spanish tango and flamenco dancers, she passionately explored the world of bodies in movement (dances, wrestling, martial arts, bullfighting) and restructured, dressed up or scarred bodies. She captured shapes, gestures and often concentrated on a detail (hands, foot, lips...), she brought out sensuality, strength and beauty.
Since 1986, the date of her first presentation titled Toques in Madrid, she hasn't stopped exhibiting the photos that she has taken throughout her numerous voyages around the world. She he is a member of the VU agency.
