Is There A Digital Photography Revolution?

Photography brings memories, feelings, and ideas to life. We enjoy looking back on things that once happened in the past and digital photographs give us the ability to shorten that “past” exponentially.

In fact, it is hard to recall what photography was like before digital.

Studio Visit: Wendy Cabrera Rubio

The work of Wendy Cabrera Rubio (Mexico City, 1993) is hard to categorize. Her multidisciplinary practice does not respond to specific artistic techniques, norms or tendencies, but it is defined by her deep research about the cultural and ideological potentials of images and objects. Visiting her studio in her home town was an opportunity to get to know closer not only her understanding about working with art, but also the multiple imaginaries than surround her and that has defined her way to see and to shape another visual and material world.
