I love documenting Mitzvahs. I love going to the synagogue, pray, celebrate such an important day for a jewish family. I think that is because I don't have any family member in the US and when I am working in a Mitzvah I feel at home I feel safe I feel close to my family.
Welcome, I am Marcela
The meaning of creating something for me, the way I celebrate life with all glories and pain and share this is photographing. I am a storyteller and I make images to tell my truth, using reality as my canvas and transforming life in to art. This dance of order and chaos translated in an image.
I love people, and yes this is a statement. Some artists photograph trees, buildings, I photograph people. I am in love with human beings and their response to life.
Are you jewish? Did you have a Bat Mitzvah?
Jewish jewish jewish. I had a Bat Mitzvah in Brazil and it was amazing. There we do as a group but I had my solo.
Do you take portraits before the ceremony?
Yes. Usually you have to arrive one hour before your schedule time with the rabbi.
Do you make albums?
I offer printing service. That means, that I have been working with a lab to calibrate color to make sure that what you saw in your computer is going to be on paper.
