Yvonne Venegas explores the rules and accidents of weeding photography, probably the social use of intimate photography most simbolically charged.
Special Days is the result of the rescue of images from the archive of Venegas Fotografía Fina, a photography studio that her father, José Luis, established in Tijuana, Baja California, in 1972. The younger photographer thus reveals the routines that came to define the iconography of the emergent middle class who lived in this border city in the 1970s and ’80s, appropriating a set of images that, by breaking the photographer’s social contract with his subjects, offer us a fleeting, fragmentary viewpoint.
