The photographic works of Cristina Hoch is something that many people would connect with. It is hard not to become enamored with the evocative images that focuses on soulful eyes and freckled youth. Although at first glance Cristina Hoch's photos seem devoid of emotion, they are actually rife with expression in ways that only children and teens are capable of.

Often juxtaposing nature with her human subjects, Cristina Hoch says, "What I want to show through my photographs is the hidden beauty in the rivers, in the forests, in a glance, in the sea, in the empty and open spaces, in freckles, in simple details that my camera can’t miss; and I try to transmit this, mostly, through portraiture." Cristina Hoch is currently studying at the University of Granada.
