LOOK AT ME IN THE EYES!
Face to Face with People on the Other Side of the Wall.
The exhibition “Look at me in the eyes! Face to face with people on the other side of the wall” is a photographic compendium of portraits of Mexicans and Central Americans who travel the streets, as well as daily life, captured by the photographer’s absorbed eye, in a spontaneous way, without any studio resources.
This series seeks an approach with the Dartmouth College community to unveil everything that darkens the judgment towards these faces. It is a genuine avenue to open artistic windows of empathy. It is an invitation to dwell in the gaze of these passengers on the other side of the wall to understand their humanity.
Be ready to discover gestures of an ancestral cultural identity behind the photographed eyes.

As a photographer, I try to confront reality with minimal manipulation. I understand photography as an art of proxemics and discovery. To observe, choose, approach and photograph.
I capture spontaneous, real, tangible images, and through them, I intend to bring the observer closer to daily moments of life, to unleash consciousness in the reflection on the perception of realities.
