My name is Ximena Ruiz. I was born and raised in Mexico City. Along the way I lived in France, Spain , different cities in USA and finally in Charleston, South Carolina -where I call home at the moment.

I found my love for Photography while traveling. I was lucky to find a way to encapsulate and transmit all these experiences and memories I had during these trips and share them with everybody. I remember the anticipation before getting the films back and having tangible memories of the experience, I was so excited that I had goose bumps on how these memories and emotions will appear into paper.

Since then, I have submerged myself in landscape photography and the natural artistry of the world. Using the medium I try to create a visual diary of the banal but quirky aspects of life.

Last but not least I want to share one of my favorite quotes in life that relates on how I look at the world with my camera

"Life is like a camera, just focus on what is important and capture the good times, develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, just take another shot! – un known.

Hope you enjoy!
