Movement, emotion, expression, and effort constitute the visual language that Lucrecia Díaz intends to convey through her images.
Diaz studied International Relationships at Externado de Colombia, in Bogotá, and later obtained an MBA at Instituto de Empresa in Madrid, Spain. However, she decided to devote her professional life to photography. With that goal in mind, she obtained a Photography Diploma from the Catholic University in Santiago, Chile, and a Master of Arts degree in Photography from Barry University, in Miami, Florida.
She has documented, among others, the following institutions: Miami Contemporary Dance, Eduardo Guerrero’s company or Ballet Folklórico de Antioquia (Colombia). She has also worked with other cultural institutions such as the Miami Symphony Orchestra.
Diaz has exhibited her work at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Miami (MOCA), the Key Biscayne Public Library, the Gato Gallery at Barry University, the Colombian and Brazilian consulates in Miami, and in the Freedom Tower in Miami, the exhibition titled: the Celebration of Female Vision – Images by South Florida Women Photographers. In 2019 she presented “Agatha in the Air,” at the store of the internationally recognized Spanish Designer, Agatha Ruiz de la Prada. That same year she also presented “A Vision of the World” at the Colombo Americano center in Medellín, Colombia.
Her work has been featured in the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP) magazine, and Diaz´s photographs have also graced the covers of DANCEing magazine, Dance International, and Dance Spirits, among others. Diaz published, in collaboration with the Miami Contemporary Dance, the calendar entitled “Miami Contemporary Dance Calendar – Water & Sky” (Agua y Luz) 2012 and 2013.
Diaz currently finds herself immersed in a new project titled “Madrid Dance” with which she looks to highlight the diversity and professionality of ballet and dance in Spain. She has collaborated with the aforementioned designer, Agatha Ruiz de la Prada and some of the country’s most important and groundbreaking dancers from the most important national companies such as: the Ballet Nacional, La Compañía Nacional de Dance Company y la Compañía de Victor Ullate Company.
