EpsonInterview with Isabel Munoz aquarelle paper artist : Isabel Munoz is well known for her innovative work with aquarelle paper. She is admired for the strength of her images, which look at life and people, their feelings and happenings. In the live manifestation of the male and female body, she has found veins of expression that are capable of communicating what are the most beautiful and the darkest parts of the being. This is why she is capable of stirring emotions with her photos, whether the subject is a ballet dancer or the victims of an earthquake. Through her digital photography, life speaks. I usually elaborate on my work to create a series dedicated to subjects that stir my emotions.
Interview with Isabel Munoz aquarelle paper artistCentre of the Villa of Madrid
This is highlighted at the exhibition I presented at the Centre of the Villa of Madrid. It was about my last 16 years of work. Dances, such as tango or flamenco, live dramas, such as the slavery in Cambodia or the remembrance of Bam. A study about the tribes of Ethiopia, who use their own body as a language also lead me to delve into the violent expressivity of the urban tribes, the Maras, in El Salvador.


What role does technology play in your work?
We are like the old troubadours because we also explain history but instead photography is our language. The digital aspect has given us a marvellous expressive richness, but I believe that each author has to find his own way of expression, develop beyond the technologies.

What have you gained from digital technology?
Infinite ones. I have achieved deeper and more intense blacks and bigger size prints. Digital impression has allowed us to grow and improve the way we express ourselves. All of the negatives are printed on an Epson Stylus Pro 9800 by my assistant, Spanish artis David López, who f or me is a guru of the present Spanish photographic technique. We are even reprinting copies of my previous works because we see that the quality is now decidedly superior. Needless to say digital technology means we are able to take a complete laboratory to the jungle or anywhere in the world.

Do you benefit from printing photos on location?
Yes. Thanks to the portable Epson PictureMate 500, which works with a battery and makes brilliant copies. The Maras and Salvadorian urban tribes, opened up their lives to us and let us take pictures of them inside and outside the prisons. Or in the case of people whose life is a true drama, little girls who dedicate themselves to prostitution, persons damnified by an earthquake… if they see that you are able to capture all of their interior beauty from a moment when it appears in their glance. Suddenly they open their hearts up wide and your work enters into another dimension, the dimension of true life.

It seems that Epson is a brand in which you confide…
The other day, I was thinking about what material and information I was going to share with you, I began to become aware of the quantity of Epson equipment that forms an integral part of my work. With the Epson Stylus Pro 9800, David is making the negatives for the platinums of 1.13 x 1.60 meters, as was recommended to him by another guru of the technique, who is Dan Burkholder, of Dallas (USA).

How else do you use Epson printers?
We are also very pleased with the Epson Stylus Pro 4800. We are obtaining copies of a magnificent quality which allows us to make colour proofs, see the results immediately and correct the images when it is necessary, without waiting for the laboratory process and with an unbeatable price.

How did you become familiar with this printer?
It’s the one we used in The White Night, a marvellous event in which Epson involved itself immediately. This is what I like about this firm, its enthusiasm. It was a matter of taking pictures of normal people saying “I love you”. There were very touching moments, such as the mother affected by cancer who wanted to have a picture taken holding her daughter's hand so that she would remember her after her death. With the Stylus Pro 4800 we made copies that we gave to each one of them, and right there I was astonished by the great quality and speed with which it prints; therefore, I acquired one.

What projects do you have in mind?
The exhibition I presented at the Centre of the Villa, as well as The White Night, will begin to travel all over Spain. We are also going to organize some round tables where three persons from the Mara tribe and Salvadorian authorities will be present to discuss penal and social matters. Thanks to this, we are going to make a book about this problem, which will include the words of a person from the Mara tribe, who is in a high security prison and is an excellent poet.
