Playing with the sky - Valeria Prieto

Valeria Prieto, based in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, Mexico, studied graphic design at the Institute of Architecture, Design and Art at the University of Ciudad. She’s been teaching contemporary art and illustration at elementary, middle and high schools in Mexico since 2002. She also serves as a photographer and collaborator in short films and animations.

Her latest work ‘Playing with the sky’ caught my eye on her blog which is simply brilliant! I asked her if she could share her thoughts around it:

Those images were shot with Sony Cyber Shot TX5, and then I selected some vintage images/elements to add more life into them. Sometimes I use a peephole and a crystal with cuts to get various background effects and I like to merge several photos into one.

I have loved photography since childhood. One of the best things I’ve seen in the city where I live (city of Juárez, Chihuahua, MX) are the sunsets, so I love to take pictures of them because every day it is different, especially in winter the sunsets are so colorful that I don’t need to apply color correction. I like to play with the shots by adding items such as musical notes and birds on electric wires, buildings or images that may become part of those great sceneries.

    Do you ever license your work and if so, what do you charge. I love the piece that has the sky, wires with music notes and 5 birds.

    Please advise.

    Many thanks!
