Exhibition to commemorate International Migrants’ Day

These photographs open a window into the lives of people who emigrate; of those who have been uprooted from their homes, forced to leave behind familiar landscapes and undertake uncertain journeys. This work sheds light on the obstacles they faced along the way, prejudices, discrimination and systemic challenges, while illuminating the resilience and hope that reside in the human spirit.

As a filmmaker, his work has focused on portraying and documenting the last decade of social changes in Latin America, especially migration, forced disappearance, and the COVID-19 pandemic. His film work has been exhibited at festivals such as Cervantino, Ambulante, GIFF and DocsMX and in cinemas such as the Cineteca Nacional, the Filmoteca de la UNAM and the Centro Cultural España.
His work has been used for research and campaigns by humanitarian and human rights organizations such as WOLA, Amnesty International, Doctors Without Borders, Save The Children, Extinction Rebellion, UNHCR, among others.

Through this exhibition, the images encourage us to confront our own biases, challenge prevailing narratives, and recognize the shared humanity that unites us all. It is an invitation to reflect on our own roles in fostering an inclusive society that defends the rights and dignity of each individual.

Portraits of LGBTIAQ+ migrants at the Mexico-Guatemala border.

Within this selection of photographs one can see how color takes center stage to give a deeper meaning to the communal detachment that migrants experience as they set out on their journey in search of their new destination; their portrait seems absent and already uprooted from what they once called home.

CASA GAMA was born from the need of a family of art collectors and gallery owners to create the gallery of the future. A space that brings together artists who help people expand their consciousness about high priority issues to generate the change that humanity needs. CASA GAMA's mission is to promote art with a cause through a disruptive model in which income not only serves to support the gallery and the artist, but also to empower the protagonists of the works that inhabit them and that are, those who need it most. Additionally, CASA GAMA seeks to democratize art, bringing its exhibitions to the maximum number of people regardless of creed, social condition, race, sexual preference or any other variable that causes discrimination. The intention is to bring art to all people, and open the doors through different media and sales channels so that any conscience can enjoy the experience of being a collector
