A photographer and fine B&W printer, Mara Catalán moved to New York in 1990 becoming an apprentice to Gar Lillard at Lab One. In 1996, she moved to Chiapas, Mexico, where she worked in the archive of the Na’Bolon Museum and documented the evolution of the Zapatista uprising. Returning to New York in 1998, she started printing for Magnum Photos and in 2000 opened her own darkroom and studio called Studio304. She has exhibited her work in Spain, England, the United States, and Mexico. Catalan’s photographs are part of numerous collections, among them, the Side Gallery, Spencer Throckmorton Inc, Mead Art Museum, HHHC, and the Linda Kastan Collection.
