BioMalú Alvarez's imagery is rich with a sensibility for loss. Natural environments inspire her painterly color photographs, in which she presents themes that range from identity to mortality. Born in Mexico and raised in Texas, she photographs subjects with a cautious desire to preserve memories, often related to home. She has shown her work in group exhibitions at the International Center of Photography, Sasha Wolf and Foley galleries in New York City, as well as the Carnegie Art Museum in Oxnard, California. Her editorial work appears in Travel + Leisure and Conde Nast Traveller UK.
