Mábel is a visual passionate about cultural and natural heritage, antiques, old books, art, history of medicine, museums, architecture and much more. She enjoys spending time searching for fascinating, unique, unprecedented objects or images, mainly for the oddity and spell they hold. Convinced that beauty is a place that can be inhabited, Mábel has this unstoppable urge to look, to observe, eager to keep on finding more stimulating, inspirational or wonderful images each time.
