The Beauty of a Book is the world it opens to your mind...the pages are filled with insights, wonder, and the discoveries of humans searching their world and their psyches for a universal truth and a way to express that truth in a fresh, defining, comforting and artful way. Enliven Book Club is a place to gather your favorite new ideas, dance a little, read a lot, and interact with our Enliven authors--all of whom are so excited to share their love and insights with you. We are about connection. We are about igniting change. We are Enliven.

Mariana Schulze

Mariana Schulze began her eclectic photography career studying Art Direction in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She quickly absorbed the underlying organic patterns of creativity and developed an eye for beauty. Mariana further advanced her career working closely with professional photographers in the advertising and fashion industry worldwide. She worked with film and then became a pioneer in high-end digital photography before most people recognized its potential as a powerful medium.

After settling in Ojai, the past 12 years of Mariana's work has become iconic within the spirited bohemian California lifestyle. Hunting for momentary glimpses of light meeting the imperfections of beauty in and around her subjects,  she waits in the shadows, ever stalking the ephemeral sunlight as it dances across the surface of an intangible reality everyone feels but can’t articulate.  A window into a world we all know, but don't quite remember.
