Marcela was born in Monterrey, Mexico. Her attraction to ice, glaciers and winter landscapes guided her to Norway, where she fell in love with its spectacular nature, and where she has been living the past 9 years.
In 2010, her adventurous spirit, her fascination for polar bears and her dream to see them in their natural habitat, led her to the end of the world… Svalbard. Officially the northernmost inhabited place on earth, where Marcela lived for more than two years and took magical nature photos.
Marcela wish to donate 10% of her sales to Ecoteria, its environmental commitment and public awareness work done through their website, which inspires people to choose environmentally friendly goods and services. That means that, in addition of getting Marcela’s beautiful photographic art, you will also help the environmental conservation by buying her photography. It will be marked on the back of the frame with the text:
Thank you for your contribution to environmental solution: Ecoteria.no.!
There has been a great interest in her photography both in Mexico and in Norway, where she have had several individual exhibitions. Riksrevisjonen Norge og Det Norske Veritas (DNV GL) have exhibited her photos during the summer 2014. Det Norske Veritas Artfoundation bought 3 of her large photos to their collection in 2014.
Her next photo-project and expedition will be in Greenland during next year, she is concerned about the alarming situation in the Arctic. The glaciers are melting drastically and some of them had hit the point of no return. The sea ice is slowly disappearing, which endanger the arctic wildlife like seals and polar bears and make sea level rise drastically.
Marcela wants to devote a big part of her life traveling to the places around the poles and staying for long periods. Through her photography, she is eager to contribute to leave a valuable legacy for the next generations.
