About Isabel Díez
Based in the Basque Country, Isabel Díez is photographer and marine biologist. Since her childhood, Isabel has maintained a dual relationship with nature: a rational one that arises from her curiosity about how life works, along with a spiritual connection that emerges from the inner revelations that she experiences in the wild. The analytical and artistic sides of her personality have flourished symbiotically to give a body of work that depict the natural world through lyrical and evocative images. Anywhere on the planet where nature is well preserved is for her a special, sacred and inspiring place. Beyond the physical appearance of the subjects, she is interested in the personal world of feelings and emotions that can be built around them.
Isabel is an award-winning photographer, lecturer, workshop leader and author of two photography books: "Between Tides" (2021) and "At the Edge of the Tides" (2009). She was a member of the project ‘Objetivo Pura Vida’ [Objective Pure Life] staged by the Spanish Embassy in Costa Rica to portray the extraordinary biodiversity of this country, and head editor of the IRIS magazine by the Spanish Nature Photographers Association (Aefona) over the 2011-2014 period. Her work has been exhibited throughout Spain and in several other countries. She has taken part in the jury panels of renowned international competitions such as Asferico, Montphoto and GDT-European Wildlife Photographer of the Year.
