Carmen Ayala photographer

Carmen Ayala discovered a world of creative possibilities in photography when she learned the cyanotype process in 2015. She has now expanded her work to other photographic processes and also works in liquid emulsion and anthotype.
From: Almería, Spain.
Shows: Cyanotypes, Liquid emulsions and Anthotypes.


Carmen Ayala was born in the South of Spain, where she grew up in full contact with nature. Her interest in photography began as a child when she realized that photographs were portals to other places and times. Most of her work revolves around nature, the place where she feels most comfortable and finds inspiration. Carmen Ayala took up digital photography in 2011, resuming a hobby practiced in the analog era. Four years later she learned the cyanotype technique, which inspired her to carry out a two-year landscape project in the province of Almería, which was exhibited in several art spaces in the area. She also experimented with liquid emulsion printing photograms.

In 2017, Carmen Ayala received a prize for Best Photograph in the Natural Spaces of Almería contest. More recently, she is creating series of digital still life and anthotypes, a process that has brought her back to the natural habitat.

“Through photography, I have walked a path that has led me to become aware of the need to reconnect with nature.”
