Sensuales y Exóticas
Sexy and Exotic

Sensuales y Exóticas (Sexy and Exotic) is a series that looks at the portrayals of the feminine in Mexican culture. In the same spirit as some of my previous work, these images visit unusual and dark aspects of the feminine, allowing a direct contact between the person posing and the camera, the intent is clear. Eye contact is key to the inner strength of these images. The theme of the feminine is very present in my photographs and for obvious reasons speaks to my own feminine experience that becomes intertwined with that of my subjects. "Sexy and Exotic" poses the question of what is beauty and feminine.
