The Interior Design? We call it art. Art is also about food, hotels, crowded beaches, etc. This must be the spirit that guides the work of the photographer Claudia Uribe Touri (www.claudiauribe.com): An artistic approach to the world around us.
With academic design, art and photography studies, Claudia Uribe Touri works from place to place, from nation to nation. Her headquarter is in Miami, but shooting requires a well-structured and wider goal: the world itself. And so, wherever she is, for anyone who works, she takes perfect snapshots with color equivalence, balance and details. It takes a trained eye to take photo and balance at the same time. Claudia Uribe Touri’s works as a kind of perfection grid: each photograph must be for her as a world apart. No matter whether in the lens there is the image of a modern living room, a fruit plate, a beach stuffed with umbrellas. Balance is an art.
Africa, Japan, Scandinavia: these are some of the landing stages on the journey of this woman and her camera. The fragments of these human hubs are scattered in the photographs. Perfection, balance, expression. They seem to speak, these images rich of chromatism and contrast. They seem to escape from the glossy pages of magazines, pierce the web screen.
The work of Touri is imprinted on Home Decor Magazines, Interior Design and Architecture Magazines, brochures of restaurants. It could be there in that press insert next to you, while you are reading this post, or in the restaurant’s menu you have peeled leafed through last evening. You might recognize her clean and simple style in more and more places.
The art of photography, like any craft, requires not only passion and dedication to be transmitted, but also knowledge and studies behind. The concentrate juice of passion and talent is what comes up by a tireless study in its field.
Therefore, our photographer cares about deeply understand what it takes to the customer before working for him, in order to enter in his vision, in his designs, in his spaces and his ambitions. Perhaps this is the most complex and difficult job.
After that, she just has to pick up the camera, and leave for a new adventure.
