Cover Story: AMERICAN BEAUTY
Photographer: Fernando Penhos Zaga
I was born and raised in mexico city to a magic family, dysfunctional of course but amazing.
Then I moved to Israel and graduated from Bezalel academy of arts with a ﬁne arts master, after that, my ambition brought me back to my headquarters in Mexico city where I recently develop a new form of fashion photography and plan my next destination to continue with my journey into becoming an art collector and a proper human being.
My style’s a combination of an extreme sense of wonder and a love-hate relationship with both commercial and conceptual art; My source of inspiration are the millions and millions of image maker all over the history of planet earth, from renaissance painters to contemporary photographer Arnaud Pyvka to the average smartphone image taker.
In this story “American Beauty AKA Uruapan Mexican Loki” I wanted to somehow mix the frenzy (but very beneﬁcial) going on in Mexico because of Trump’s stupidity and the inﬂuence of united states over Mexican’s minds through history. Everything I do is a consequence of a coincidence.
