The city. The night.
I have always given myself into the city. I am seduced by every street, every corner, and every facade, darkened at night, illuminated by stars and neon signs... As if I always needed to explore it, go through it, know it deeply. To conquer it.Consume it with every step, and every look. And, when I walk through it, violent and uninhabitable, it gives itself to me, to fragment it, to be with it, to be inside it and it inside me. With me. Create it, then let me go. And lose me in the light of day.
Verónica Mar is a Mexican flâneuse and visual artist. Her work arises from the processes of conflict and reconciliation between herself and the city.
The photographs of her authorship have been exhibited in Mexico, Cuba, Scotland, USA, Chile, Spain and Italy, and have also been shared by platforms such as Luz del Norte, Fotógrafas LATAM and Femgrafía. In 2020 her work "Suspenso" was selected in the Urban Photo Awards. She is also the author of the photobooks Visiones de la Ciudad (2020) and Ciudad cielo (2022). Her work is part of the first Mexican Street Photography Anthology (Observadores Urbanos, 2023) and was published in the CUARTOSCURO magazine.
She is currently the host of the photography show Blanco & Negro.
The time Veronica Mar spends wandering around the city that only exists at night feels precious.
