Maria

Hello! Salut! Hola!

Hello there! I'm María Queralt, a Photographer, Creative Retoucher and Digital Artist based in Paris, France. I am currently Senior Visual Production Manager at Christian Dior Couture. With more than ten years of experience, I've worked for several Museums, Art Galleries, Auction Houses and Studios in Paris, London and Madrid.

After studying History and Archaeology, I continued my studies in Photography. As a historian and photographer, my photography connects people to the Art's atmosphere. You will find below a selection of the publications and clients I've worked for during the past years. Please, have a look at my portfolio and do not hesitate to contact me. Cheers!

I was born in Spain where I finished my Degree in History and my Masters in Archaeology, with a Dissertation and Research Proposal in Ancient Numismatics, focused on “The Coins of the Ptolemies”. Afterwards, I continued my studies in Photography in London and started to work as a Fine Art photographer. At the same time, I developed a great interest on Digital Art and started to create my own art with the photographs I take. The result is a combination of my knowledge in History with photographic and creative retouching skills and the use of different photo editing softwares.

I believe good photography of art can change the way people look at it. Each work of art has a story to tell which help us to understand its surrounding context. Art makes the world a better place. As a historian and photographer, my photography connects people to the object's atmosphere, maximizing the interest.
