Yvette Coronado submits Dulce Pinzon

Dulce Pinzon is a smart Contemporary Latina photographer. She was born in Mexico City in 1974 and moved to New York to study at The International Center of Photography in 1995. Her focuses on the Mexican immigrants that thrive among the New York City landscape. Pinzon's website features three of her series, People I Like, Superheroes, and Multiracial. These series are diverse, clever, and well crafted.
In The two series People I Like and Superheroes, Pinzon approaches her subjects of Latinos in two different styles. People I Like is a series devoted to portraiture, Pinzon captures Latino eccentrics with simplicity and grace. Light is an integral part of the series. The plain dark background showcases the subject as the light softly illuminates them. Within the light the subject is truly revealed and a strong sense of drama is created. Superheroes documents the immigrant in their everyday work situations.The twist is that the artist sees them as superheroes and has them dress up as different heroes. The artist is paying homage to all the hard working immigrants that manage to work legally and send money back home to their communities. This series' costumes and background settings are the essential elements that showcase the subject. Pinzon creates a sincere vision of Latino immigrants.
Pinzon's photography can be seen at her website and some of her work is currently being shown at The Guadalupe Cultural Art Center's Fantasic Fuerzas show.
