Carolina is a Santiago de Chile born photographer, specializing in nature and landscaping. Before becoming a photographer, Carolina was unaware of the marvelous biodiversity around her. Photography for her has been in her own words "a constant discovery of how wonderful and fragile nature is".
Through photography, Carolina began to expand her knowledge about nature especially of the species that inhabit Chile's landscapes. Carolina's determination and calm attitude is represented throughout her work.
Committed to raise awareness about the natural heritage of Chile, Carolina's photographic work together with other 16 photographers has been published in two books "Naturaleza Revelada" and "Costa Central Chile".
Carolina has captured one of the seven owls that can be seen in Chile, the Pequen, as well as the long-tailed meadowlark and the white-sided hill star, which can be seen in Chile, the Falkland Islands and Bolivia and Argentina, respectively.
Her consciousness has taken her to capture through her lens the native chilean Andean Deer, which is in danger of extinction with only 2,000 of its species. They live alone or in small groups and usually preserved in small population centers in the regions of Bío Bío and Los Lagos, though its largest distribution is in Aysén and Magallanes.
An avid traveller and enthusiast of biodiversity, Carolina's work is mostly outdoors throughout South America. One her images showcase the sea lions of the Isla Chañaral de Aceituno Marine Reserve. These sea lions along with a rich biodiversity of whales, dolphins and birds are now threatened by the Dominga mining project.
Her expertise and awareness of sustainable traveling manifests itself through her photos of Puerto Río Tranquilo. Located in Aysén, one of the least populated regions of Chile, because of its complicated geography, it has not yet been a site highly visited by tourism. A place of conservation to keep it sustainable.
A wonderful site that is being damaged by tourism, Torres del Paine National Park is located in the Patagonia of Chile is an iconic place for its unique fauna and the three granite towers. The tops with the shape of horns are famous also called Cuernos del Paine.
The unsustainable processes and treatments of mining companies, such as Alto Maipo and real estate projects are continuously threatening the environment like Veranadas Embalse El Yeso and Los Molles, respectively. A call out for authorities in preserving the natural resources of these sites as well as the importance of precautionary measures of tourist companies is urgent.
Carolina's exceptional work has been published and considered for exhibitions. She is an eager photographer to expand her work to other continents.
