Elizabeth Sanjuan is a visual artist that started photographing over thirty years ago and made photography her primary focus eight years ago. Her passion is to discover, the vast mosaic of people, lands and cultures that the world offers; and to record the incredible panorama of color, pattern and energy that bombards the receptive eye. Photography gives her the opportunity to observe, but she believes that the lens intensifies her ability to truly understand the world we live in. She ranges worldwide, and draws on imagery that includes not only people, but the natural and man-made surroundings that define and shape our cultures and our communities. For Elizabeth, the camera provides objective proof of the remarkable commonality of humankind; and reinforces the urgent need to protect the cultural and environmental heritage that define us all .
