About the work
Exhibition history
Yvonne Venegas
Mexican-American, b. 1970
Follow

Born in the U.S. and raised in Mexico, Yvonne Venegas takes candid portrait photographs of Mexico’s upper classes. Her series “The Most Beautiful Brides of Baja California” focuses on the lives of Tijuana’s well-heeled women and their social circles, serving as a counterpoint to the more formal images taken by her father, who worked as one of the top bridal photographers in the city. Capturing behind-the-scenes images of women during their social rituals, Venegas has said, “I became interested in seeking their fragile moments when they were unprepared for the picture and unconscious of their own appearance.” For over four years, Venegas was permitted to document the life and home of Maria Elvia De Hank, wife of millionaire and former mayor of Tijuana, Jorge Hank Rohn. Her images are quietly critical of the world depicted, and her titles—Watch or Bag—point toward the material concerns of the upper classes. Venegas is the twin sister of the popular Mexican musician, Julieta Venegas.
