Valeria was born in Colombia but has spent most of the last 13 years outside her home country, backpacking through 35 countries before settling down in Montreal. This adventurous globetrotter always chooses the path less travelled because she enjoys the discomfort and vulnerability that comes with a good challenge. Valeria was introduced to photography by chance, after winning a photography scholarship with a project she completed on relational aesthetics. She fell in love with light and the philosophy behind capturing a moment and has since had the opportunity to work alongside great Peruvian artists like Roberto Huarcaya and Hector Mata.
