Katy Gomez catalina

Country: Spain ūüá™ūüáł

Born in √öbeda Spain. Doctor in Veterinary Medicine and vocational photographer.
Her work, based in photographic essay, shows a personal perspective, a point of view of the reality which interests her. Travel is the common thread of all her work. The camera has become an inseparable travelling companion, which helps her to tell her travels as a writer may do in his travel journal. She is deeply seduced by the human element.
