Hi There. My name is Mauricio Alvarez. I was born on January 12, 1976 in Medellin, Colombia.
I don’t like being put in a box, but I consider myself a Social Photographer. The questions of everyone’s place in society is at the heart of my work. I use my camera as a marvelous tool to share the beauty, the absurdity and the hardness of people's life.
My path is quite atypical. I studied Engineering in Colombia and obtained an MBA in Europe. For more than 18 years, I have been working as a marketing and innovation facilitator for major brands such as Danone Group, L'Oréal, Total, AXA. During my spare time, I have been pursuing my passion for photography. In all cases, my business competencies have always been key to better identify and build my photographic subjects.
Until 2015, I have worked mostly on self-assigned projects, but i am now open to new collaboration perspectives. By the way, I would be happy to speak with you about inspiring projects. Then, feel free to write to me at
Thanks for visiting my website.
