CLIENTS: Phaidon Press, Conde Nast Traveller, Chef Enrique Olvera
I’ve never considered myself as an artist, I always felt like I don’t belong in the art industry. When I look at my work, I don’t see art pieces, I see well-executed images, tools for very specific forms of communication. I’m usually ashamed to show my personal work, something different from what everyone is used to seeing in my pictures: food. This nomination somehow woke up a motivation to take the risk and send what I want to manifest instead of thinking of what others expect from me to present.
Being a Latin American woman with no artists in my family background somehow forced me to develop what I call a survival photography style where most of my work corresponds to job commissions, leaving much less space and time to personal exploration. I don’t want to sound ungrateful because it is also a luxury to live by doing what you love. I’ve set goals and I’ve fulfilled most of my dreams but there’s a thin line between feeling satisfied with your achievements but not too much, in order to keep fighting for more.
