"In recent years I have been working and living in Mexico, looking for new aspects of my interest. This is how I came across some of the alternative Mexican religions that exist outside of the Catholic Church, and how I experienced their practices, rituals and meetings. With the series New routes of faith my purpose is to bring viewers closer to a distant reality, to make them involved in the world of these characters, to make the viewer understand what first seems to be a controversial and condemned movement, it is in fact a response to a brutal social and political system. These beliefs, their images, their appearance are reflections of an inhuman and violent society. These alternative religions are adapted to serve the marginalized who need help to cope with extreme social exclusion: violence, crime , violate human rights and poverty on a daily basis. For people who fall outside the social institutional systems, who cannot trusting the legal authorities, and they no longer feel comfortable to pray to established Catholic saints, so they have created their own beliefs and laws, mixed with ancient Mexican traditions and folklore of tales and witchcraft. Religion is a tool for their survival: these beliefs are capable of keeping them safe from danger, and their gods do not judge them, even if they live in sin or pray for economic success and material goods.s.
The core of the New Paths of Faith series captures the followers and rituals of cults. In addition, I used a wide range of documentation of the places where these religions appear, I captured the conditions of the city, its surroundings and its margins to create a broader understanding of the life circumstances of the devotees. The fanzine was published on the occasion of the first solo exhibition of the series. He intended to create a more complex atmosphere in the book than would have appeared on the walls by using translations of the original sentences and symbols from the local tattoo culture. "."
