Isabel Munoz stands out as an assertive photographer. Platinum prints and extra large formats are favourite techniques used in order to strengthen her message of passion for the body as a means of approaching the study of human beings.

Tango and Flamenco (1989) are considered the starting point of her unremitting quest of the sentiments and emotions of world groups and cultures in an attempt to capture the expressions of beauty of the human body. When Munoz focuses her camera on dancers, wrestlers, warrior monks, bullfighters or deprived children she does it with a strong sense of commitment.

Her first individual exhibition, Toques, in 1986 at the French Institute in Madrid and her participation in the Mois de la Photographie in Paris in 1990, set her on an international trajectory as a high profile photographer without boundaries. These will be the first of many exhibitions throughout the main cities of Europe, the Americas and Asia. Her photographs are shown at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia (Madrid), Foto Colectania (Barcelona), Fundacion Canal (Madrid), Maison Européenne de la Photographie (Paris), Musee de la Danse in Sweden (Stockholm), New Museum of Contemporary Art (New York) and Instituto Cervantes (Mexico, Guatemala, Bolivia, Shanghai).

Isabel Munoz work has been widely recognized with numerous honours and distinctions. Recent awards include the Bartolomé Ros Prize (PHotoEspana 2009), the Gold Medal to Fine Arts in Spain (2009), two World Press Photo prizes (2000 and 2004), the UNICEF Spain Social Awareness Award in 2010, and the Prize of Fundación DEARTE (2012).

Isabel Munoz was born in Barcelona in 1951 and lives in Madrid since 1970.
