118: Natalia Lopera

Natalia Lopera

This week, both today and Saturday, I'm going to use the gallery space to show an image by different students from my classes at the Universidad de Antioquia in Medellín, Colombia. I hope this will be a way to both reward and push them forward with the goal of being featured. This is an idea I'll repeat periodically.

With the student gallery posts, there won't be a statement on the work, but I will briefly mention the body of images the photograph comes from. In this case, Natalia is developing a project based in the intimacy of her family life in the semi-urban edges of Medellín; a subgroup of images in the project explores the role of their various animals as part of the family dynamic.
