Mariola Rosario was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Exposed to many shades of the color blue, she was raised somewhere between a Caribbean breeze and a tropical suburban sweaty gritty chaos. Mariola is a photographer and professor, currently living in Texas and she's the author of the photography blog my sweet old etcetera and a member of various art collectives including the Madrid based Pradera93 and the female-led UJA in Puerto Rico. Having lived between Puerto Rico, the US, Spain and France during the last five years, her work has been included in a number of collective art exhibits and happenings. With a special love for film photography and artisan methods of film processing you can almost grasp this tangibility in her work. Her work plays around with themes of dreams, nightmares, good and bad trips, everydayness, daze, feminism and a deep distrust of authority. These images demonstrate her ability to create beautiful grainy color images that depict travel and wanderlust.
