About

headshot
My name is Clara Gonzalez, and for the last 13 years, hundreds of thousands of people have known me as “Aunt Clara”, the face, camera and voice behind Simple, by Clara, the award-nominated, and award-winning food blog.

After a zigzagging career that started in Industrial Design and looped back to food and photography – my true passions – years later, I have been photographing food and life for magazines, advertisers and photography agencies for 15 years.

My photos, articles and recipes have appeared in magazines, books, newspapers and TV from Moscow to Denver. My life in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, is reflected in pictures full of vibrant, realistic colors, and recipes that embrace the flavors of the Caribbean.
