“Look, this is not a selfie!” PART 1

LookThisIsNotSelfie (3)_EDT

This was the exhibition opening in which I had the fortune to have my parents Gerardo Vargas and María Elena Magaña, as well as my sister Lupita cut the inaugural ribbon. Also my friends Victoria Chavez and Cristina Sánchez helped me holding it. 


After the last exhibition “El migrante de sueños: Ni el primero ni el último” (in English “The Migrant of Dreams: Neither the first nor the last one”), I realized I had only one month to prepare the next one titled “Look, this is not a selfie!” and because of this not-very-well planning it was really crazy too have it done (OMG!).

The good thing is that a lot of people contributed to have it exhibited by letting me take them photographs. So, I spent days and more days photo shooting, editing and printing the pictures with the main objective of portraying those special characteristics every single person has.

Thus, through the artist’s eyes, it was possible to see the fighters, the scientist, the geologist, the entrepreneur, the princess, the king and his queen, the photographer and so on, discovering the inner self in every look (just wait a little, you will see the photographs in the next posting, then you will tell me what you see!).

I hope you enjoy this opening…
