Biography


My work explores the interconnections between the histories of photography, science, and anthropology. I trace the tensions between the making of ethnography and the development of new visual methods of representing otherness—photography, painting, sketching, and writing.

I am a writer, photographer, and doctoral student in the Department of History at the University of Texas at Austin, where I am a Fulbright-García Robles Scholar and a Contex Doctoral Fellow. In 2018, nexos awarded my essay "Testigo (in)voluntario: la muerte de Kevin Carter" with the Carlos Pereyra Essay Prize. I was born and raised on the outskirts of Mexico City, where I worked in various filmmaking and music projects. I graduated in Politics and Public Administration from El Colegio de México.
