Yvonne Venegas: Special Days: The Studio and Its Archive
The photographic project of Yvonne Venegas (Long Beach, 1970) is the result of the rescue of images from the archive of the commercial photographic studio Venegas Fotografía Fina, established by her parents José Luis and Julia Edith Venegas, in Tijuana, Baja California since 1972. The exhibition is a reflection on the methodologies of the wedding photography from his parents' studio, while analyzing the relationship between intimate photography and contemporary artistic research practice. Through the appropriation of images and through an acute analytical exercise on them, Venegas shows the routines that defined the iconography of the middle class of the border city of Tijuana during the seventies and eighties.
