Indigenous [Me]Xican

Photographer ugonzale superimposes drawings of Mexican Indigenous symbols and designs on portraits of his subjects.

“The drawing emerges as a reaction to the photo, the pose, and my relationships with my models. I eventually scan the transparency so I can superimpose the line drawing onto the photograph,” says ugonzale. “I am influenced by indigenous art forms from Mexico, Central, and South America that I render in a contemporary way, that borders between tattooing and graffiti,” adds the photographer.
