Natalia Iguiñiz, who has a background in gender and sexuality studies, as well as public policy, uses her artwork to further her political and social activism. Her work is about civil unrest and uprising in Peru and Latin America, both in contemporary times and throughout history. Though she takes on multiple mediums in her practice, Iguiñiz is best known for her photography. In her 1991 series “La Otra” (the Other), Iguiñiz photographed pairs comprised of Latin American women and their indigenous maids. Iguiñiz has also publically installed posters with feminist or socially critical messages, for which she received censure from the Roman Catholic Church in Peru.
