Mexican Pink is a Personal Project I developed exploring my personal background and the craft and color from Mexico where I was born and raised. It is named after the purplish pink color that is used in Mexico for magenta, considered an element of National Identity and a symbol of Mexican charisma. Coming from an ancestral pigment, it is frequently found in crafts, architecture and all decorative arts. Since my childhood, I always loved to create things with my hands. Besides developing my photographic skills through the years, my work has always had a big weight on handcrafted props and sets. The big tradition on color, arts, crafts and flavors I grew up with has influenced the subjects I represent in my imagery.
