Sara Aliaga Ticona is a Bolivian social communicator, photojournalist, and Aymara visual artist. As a photographer and visual storyteller, she conceives photography as a social instrument of identity reconquest. The fundamental axes of her visual research converge around gender and identity, human rights, the climate crisis, and the impact it has on indigenous peoples. Her work is built around symbolic, conceptual, and documentary narratives with which she seeks to generate reflective discourses for the creation of a conscious and ethical visual collective memory that dignifies themes that are transversal to her own reality as a woman and as a photographer.
