Maria Fernanda Perezgrovas Martinez - Photographer

Photographer in Pachuca, MexicoMaria Fernanda Perezgrovas Martinez was riding her horse Benito when contacted by The Art of the Escaramuza for an interview. She said he's her first horse, purchased just half a year ago. That's when she decided it was time to learn to ride, and lucky for her, Benito's previous owner was an escaramuza rider.

The Pachuca native began taking pictures of charreria in 2011 when an ad agency commissioned her to photograph charros for a calender. The client fell through but her photographs were honored by Mazatlan's International Photography Symposium (SIF).

After moving to Mexico City to study communications at the Panamerican University, and later to Florida to experiment with digital photography at the city's Art Institute, she moved back to Pachuca and started her professional photographer career.

Perezgrovas' most exquisite work are what she calls "photo-paintings," like the images of Amazon riders in this post.  Her next solo exhibit, titled "Mexican Charreria Tradition," opens at the end of March at the University Salle in Pachuca.
