Andres Caballero 

Los Danzantes 




Bio: I grew up in Mexico City, where I began working in documentary films and later included photography in my practice. There, I began an examination of Mexican identity through Lucha Libre events. I have been working on this subject for around 2 years, presenting a photographic exhibition called “Your Insults are Welcome” inside a Mexican Wrestling arena. I received my BA in Communications and Media Studies at the Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City. I am a recipient of a Fulbright Scholarship to pursue a graduate degree in the United States, where I am currently an MFA candidate in the Photography, Video and Imaging department at the University of Arizona’s College of Fine Arts.

Artist Statement: My work searches for the complexities and contradictions of the human experience while also exploring what identity means and how it is built through the years, which oftentimes leads to a journey of self discovery. Sociology has been an important point of reference, providing insights into how we develop specific behaviors, traits and traditions according to our own environment. One of my main principles is to approach every subject with openness and respect, developing connections with the people I work with. I strive to understand the idiosyncrasies of each individual and recognize the rituals that are integral to every community. One of my goals is to engage and challenge viewers by dismantling stereotypes that may lead to prejudice. Drawing inspiration from documentary films and literature, especially from Latin American writers.
