Write a testimonial

I have never done anything like this before,writting a testimonial or the like. I feel maybe I should write how I feel about this photographer so others may read this and possibly see her work in the same way I do. I am not a good photoghapher or even an acomplished artist but I do know what I think is great and what touches me on a personal level. I look at Vanesa Munoz's body of work and I will say I think she can stand next to the likes of Ansel Adams or anyone you may think of as Great. Ms. Munoz's work either in it's personal or professional use has ,in my opinion a soulful feeling to it. I mean Vanesa's work shows she really loves what she doing , it's not just a job and each photo reflects that sediment. Each photo I see from V.M. teaches me something new so I can better myself at this craft. My work can only get better from finding Vanesa Munoz and I thank the Gods for that.

Vanesa, has the a marvelous ability to crop her images /portraits in unusual ways, often headless and yet making it look naturally fabulous. She does maternity and wedding shots like no other I have seen. Her colors, light and models are spectacular and she often poses for stunning SP's. She has a signature thing with flying hair - something i have yet to get a hang of, beautiful clothes and lot's of style. Thanks for the inspiration my friend!!

As I write this I am blushing with embarassment inside. I THOUGHT I had already written a testamonial for you ages ago! As we say in Ireland Vanesa, I am mortified! Somewhere along the line I had stuck a mental post it note on my cerebral cortex, it must have blown off, my fault, no excuse. well, in mitigation, I've now had time to think a little bit more about what your art, your vision means to me.. Your unique style & take on reality never fails to usually surprise me, to often amaze me, & always inspire me. Have I even yet thanked you Vanesa for the tremendously generous, kind & thoughtful words of encouragement you composed for me a few months back when you composed that eloquent testamonial for me? Just in case I have not, I am deeply touched & grateful for the words you wrote. To share our art & our love of our art here with so many is such a gift is it not Vanesa? To occasionally be also fortunate enough to connect directly with another like minded spirit too, to "get" what they see, to have one's own imagination fired... Well surely that is one of the greates gift of all that flickr can grant us... Virtually every time I drop by your Photostream that is what happens to me. :) Take Care Vanesa & we must keep creating, it'll help us all live longer happier lives. Of this I am certain! I send sincere thanks to you for sharing your magnificent mind's eye with us here through your sublime, dynamic, & witty visual creations here, from an overcast County Wicklow here in Ireland...but some lightbeams may break thru by Sunset... ;)

Vanesa is such an inspiring photographer, not only a photographer but also an artist. The way she uses composition, color and people/objects is just amazing. Always creative and her own stunning way of capturing a moment! You are such a talent, and a example for me!!!! Hug, Pieter-Jan

When I think about a photographer who merge pure intelligence with surreal artform, I immediatly think about Vanesa picture. She masters romance with theatrical witt and psychology with perfect colorful settings. I discover each day and appreciate the way she establish an intelligent stream with fantastik model as herself and others. She knows how she can explore simple matter as rope and insect to exhibit the reality we face in or her own inner world ! She makes us better human to have the privilege to know her ! It is a true world to uncover to enlighten new phases when we go though the different mirror of our existence... Muchas gracias, amiga ! *

I’ve pondered for quite some time what to write about my remarkably talented friend, Vanesa that has not already been written. I am at lost for words when viewing her photographs. Each photograph draws me in and evokes emotions. Each photograph tells a story—Vanesa’s personal story that she so graciously shared with me. I am mesmerized by her endless creativity. Vanesa creates her photographs from the depth of her heart and mind. She has the ability to reach deep inside her soul, and to create the beauty in her mind's eye--a true masterpiece for all her viewers. Vanesa is a master at her craft--she is an inspiration to me and to her fellow photographers. Vanesa is not only an amazing photographer; she is also a dear friend, and most of all, a humble, honest and sweet person that is passionate about her craft. It is an honor to cross paths with someone as talented as she. Dear V, I am truly thankful that our paths have crossed and hope to learn from you.

vanesa is art, vanesa is photography, she is the portrait done at photos. her imagination ranges over, disarms and grows day by day. her images are always invariabily attractive, persuasive and complete. her form of art is photography, but you understand perfectly well that beyond this choice there is a 360°artist. the choice of the title, of the commentary and music with which frames her masterpieces always leave amazed by creativity and imagination. even more, vanesa has the ability, I think unique, to talk about her shots through the expressions, through faces and you can instantly feel the feeling of the subject portraited and you are catapulted on the set of scene next to her who is photographing for you; and this is only half of what this wonderful artist gives you, infact after shooting and before publication, there is a carefully choise of post production that transforms an already beautiful shot in a small work of art. texture, color research, bold crop, meticulous and precise work that gives the photograph an image that takes you to invariably positive surprise. but that's not all .... vanesa is also a sweet person, who's chat is always a pleasure and is always so nice to exchange written opionion, about photography like life. in short if you want to discover this wonderful artist the advice is to dive headlong into her work. you will not be disappointed!!

Her skills in her craft have been finely honed so as to include only the most important elements in her artistic creations. She is able to capture emotion and ardor in all of her work. She will move you deeply.

Let me start with a warning, if you see one of Vanesa’s images, you will want to see them all and since her creativity is endless, you will be hooked for good. Vanesa raises an image to a whole new level, with her eye, skill and heart it becomes something highly personal and original, more than a photograph, a unique work of art. There is a depth and a wonderful wholeness to Vanesa’s work and in that wholeness everything and anything can happen. The way she uses colors, textures, symbols and hair is just masterful. This also includes her use of words, which complements the images so well. Her text is short, to the point, surprising, humorous and very often adds a whole new layer of meaning to the photograph. There is a powerful and beautiful flow and uniqueness to Vanessa’s work and there are no limits to where she and her vision can go.

Vanessa is an expressive artist first. She doesn't just "capture" what she finds which is attractive or impressive. She uses her camera the way a painter uses her brush -- starting from the idea, the concept, sketching the layout, the outlines -- and only then filling in the pixels with a professional's knowledge of light and the technical stuff. She expresses what she starts out to express, and she starts out from her heart, not an abstract idea. I usually comment most on her strong sense of graphic design, which is only one element of the strength of her images, but probably impresses me most because it's what I feel I am often lacking in mine. Oh, did I mention that she's also a beautiful woman :-) and that she is very very generous in her comments about amateurs like myself. Thank you for being a friend Vanessa, Stephen

Vanesa, you are graceful, and you radiate both an inner and outer beauty through your photography. To me, you have a humility that accentuates your appearance and adds a kind of moral elegance to your aesthetic qualities. I love viewing your own view of you, and thank you for sharing with all of us on flickr...

What can I say about Vanesa that hasn't already been said? She is a pure genius at work when she is behind the camera. I am always so amazed at her work and even so after seeing her pieces again. I feel like I am seeing them for the first time. She quickly became one of my favorite artists here on Flickr. I honestly feel that there is no comparing her to anyone else. She has a one of a kind style that no one can even touch. She has a true kind heart and so many incredible emotions go into her work. She is such a strong woman and I appreciate that so much. She'd better be here to stay! ;) ♥

En la tradición del arte mexicano siempre hay toques de fantasía, de magia, de surrealismo. Encontrar esos elementos manejados de forma magistral, con elegancia, buen gusto, y mucho arte es lo que se encuentra en cada toma de AVA. Vanesa es una artista de la luz, de la refinación y la fantasía encontrada en los objetos cotidianos. Esos que todos vivimos a diario y que nadie se da cuenta. Ella es capaz de rescatarlos y evidenciarlos para que podamos ver su mundo. Aquí puedes encontrar su perspectiva, su sensibilidad y sus sentimientos de la gran persona que es. ¡Gracias AVA!

I write the draft of this on paper, away from images and sounds... unplugged, because I’d like to write not only about what Vanesa shows on the surface of a screen, but about what remains inside me when to “show” is over, and I turn back to what remains to “feel”, deep within. There’s a kind of courage she brings out of her images, the courage to face the deepest fears and the deepest shadows that might hide just around the corner or deep within the soul. There’s also a kind of fear her courage brings along. The fear that the stronger you might feel, the harder you could try, you might end up only to build yourself a bitter, colder, sharper spear to crack your heart apart. And so each photo she unveils, brings on my lips a kind of prayer, a sigh of gratitude, an awe, a bliss, but also the anticipation of a suffocating crying of despair. Vanesa and her art are just like this - a mixture of raw emotions, a touch of light, beautiful colors, amazing shapes, but most of all a fragile and - at the same time - a fierce “explorer” of everything the comes along with a human nature, with a human heart... She walked the deepest valleys of “Inferno”, was hurt to death within her heart, fell into the lion’s den, was ripped apart and burned alive, but just to find that she’s much, much more than that... So she came back. Somewhere, along the story of her journey her photo-stream unwinds, I could perceive her whisper, her wish to each of us: «I’m here to tell you and to remind myself these "stories", so that - no matter how far or how deep the shadows will take you when your turn will come - you would remember that somewhere somebody *always* wishes that you’ll come back... So COME BACK to light, come back to friendship, come back to life and love. AGAIN.»

vision is incomplete, if you haven't learnt to look for her reason. and the heart, mere science if you dared never walk with her. for there is a pain yet unnamed, painted by vanesa. that will complete you, if only you let it.
