Guadalupe Laiz is an international artist, photographer and explorer born and raised in Argentina. She moved to the US aspiring to build a photography career when she was 20 years old. Guadalupe's main focus for the past ten years has been an extensive body of work capturing the beauty and uniqueness of the indigenous horses of Iceland, a country that has touched her deeply and continues to visit. Her work “Horses of Iceland” has been shown in exhibitions all over the world. She published her first book ‘Horses of Iceland’ with German Publisher Teneues in 2019. Guadalupe has been working on a second book all over Africa for these past six years. “Among the Living, Where You Belong” is her best work yet to be released in 2023, published with Australian publisher The Images Publishing Group. Guadalupe has partnered with nonprofits involved with environmental issues, animal abuse and human-animal conflicts in Africa, such as The Diane Fossy Foundation, Save Giraffes Now and Lewa Conservancy for Rhinos as well as humanitarian work for 4Africa in South Sudan and North Uganda. Driven by the belief that art and beauty transform how people think about conservation and nature, she focuses on the environment and animals that are pure and gentle by their very nature. Guadalupe’s efforts are to communicate through art the importance of animal abuse awareness, environmental issues and the relevanceof educating all generations to make conscious lifestyle decisions to protect our planet.
