  WOMEN WORKING FOR WOMEN / Made in Latin America

November 2014 to January 2015

Made in Latin America was created for the advertising spaces of the Collective Transport System of Mexico City - Metro and the Passenger Transport Network in collaboration with Government of the Mexican Federal District, Women's Institute of Mexico City and Antimuseo.

The series consists on digital portraits of Latin American women that have been created their own space in traditionally male-dominated career fields.

Made in Latin America was made possible by the collaboration of the protagonists of the portraits who provide their phrases and pictures I based to make the drawings.

Hecha en Latinoamérica fue creado para los espacios publicitarios del Sistema de Transporte Colectivo de la Ciudad de México - Metro y la Red de Transporte de Pasajeros del D.F. en colaboración con el Gobierno del Distrito Federal, el Instituto de las Mujeres del D.F. y Antimuseo.

La serie consiste en retratos digitales de mujeres latinoamericanas que han conseguido crear su propio espacio en campos profesionales tradicionalmente dominados por hombres.

Hecha en Latinoamérica fue posible gracias a la colaboración de las protagonistas de los retratos que proporcionaron sus frases y fotografías de las cuales partí para la realización de los dibujos.
