Description
While studying on a scholarship in Spain in 1975 she participated as a student in the FOTOCENTRO in Madrid, and came into contact with several important European and Latin American photographers such as Joan Fontcuberta, and Luis Poirot. Upon returning to the United States, she became involved in the West Coast photography movement and received a California Arts Council grant (1976-78) to photograph the United Farm Workers organization led by Caesar Chavez. However, the “decisive moment’ occurred when Don Manuel Alvarez Bravo accepted her as an assistant in 1981 to print a series of platinum prints in his workshop in Mexico. Later that year she became acquainted with photographers from the Consejo de la Fotografia Mexicana such as its founder Pedro Meyer and decided to teach a series of workshops and restore the extraordinary collection of nineteenth century portraits by photographer Romualdo Garcia in the Museo de la Alhondiga de Granaditas in Guanajuato.
