Mauricio de la Garza Clariond studied architecture in Mexico. What he loves about architecture goes beyond scale or mass, it is more about how it plays with a person’s emotions through light and scale. The opportunities he had since a very young age to travel and study abroad have an impact in his creations. His knowledge of photography are the result of self-exploration and courses he has taken at New York and Florence. Mal de Mar's photography is a tool through which he can express his vision of the world through his eyes.
