San Pedro Cholula, PUEBLA - Mexico
I'm a documentary photographer living in Mexico with an MFA in Photography from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. The work I do is about life, showing how people pass the time and finding beauty in the quotidian activities. People, objects, places, and landscapes inspire me to keep exploring the medium of photography.
In my walk through the streets on foot or by car, there is always something new to see in the city. Particularly I am interested in seeing the mundane, what happens on a daily basis, and that in that apparent insignificance, shapes that normality in our lives. People who get up every day to work, young people who go with their friends to turn around after leaving classes, places that are transformed with festivities and seasons. The normality of living in a country like Mexico where people continue their existence despite the atmosphere of chaos and generalized uncertainty that surrounds them. I look for moments that show me the peculiarity of what we might call Mexican identity, with humor, astonishment, scrutiny, as a simple spectator.
