The body as the centre of experience, the physical space that connects the deep tunnels of the interior with the exterior, a place sometimes placid and luminous, sometimes dark and sinister.
Like the desire that consumes us and urges us to act, to touch and be touched, to caress, to love. The body as a measure of time, our personal time and time in history. Canons that contain us, measure us and catalogue us, the art that constructs and at the same time expands the notion of ourselves.
Photography as a means of exploring the experience, cause and effect of our interaction with the other, with the world.

It deals with the family environment. Everyday interiors, so close to the author, and so astonishing to our gaze. Portraits of a deep psychological density, where family ties are strained and kneaded by the urgent need to find a place in the complex universe of the family and the world.
He makes a series that is built on the transformation of the author himself in his own identity as a muxe. Transgressive, disturbing images that return our own gaze and the notions of sexuality and stereotypes that define us. The visual richness of the isthmus, between the baroque aesthetics of the area, the syncretism of the roles and stereotypes that the muxes adopt and violently transform.
Explore the beautiful, strong yet wounded bodies of young boxers in an allegory of religious martyrs in EX CORDE.
Reflects on the female body and the canons of beauty in society and art history.
A series that shows the body, his own body, with a gaze that, in its irony, affirms and questions the notions we have about beauty and sensuality.
It portrays a still, contemplative young albino man, where our gaze travels over the skin and its details with pleasure.
This face speaks to us of real beauty, living sculpture.

It brings together landscape and body in superimposed images and in different media that refer to the contrast between two genres and aesthetic canons of Western art.
ORLANDO DE LA ROSA
A glimpse of an unsettling, dark gaze. Part of an ongoing series. Death, passion and the ominous seek to shape the personal and collective history of a Mexico wounded by violence and fear.

Performative actions in which their parents are turned into symbolic sculptural busts. Organic matter that seems to hide, but in reality unveils the construction of strange beings.
He collects anonymous photos of children who look like himself at the age of 3, which are mixed and confused with his childhood photos. From "the profound need to build a face" he constructs an overflowing narrative, in a reflection on photography and its link with identity, its place in the arts.
At the same time as the exhibition DE OBSCENA BELLEZA, the event MICROCOLECCIONISMO was held, which offers the public photographic work at accessible prices to encourage collecting and the circulation of the work.
