Obscura Gallery is thrilled to debut the unique photo-based portraiture by Mexican artist Lou Peralta in her solo summer exhibition: Deconstructed Portraits. From the fourth generation in a family of studio portrait photographers, Peralta pushes the boundaries and defines new meanings in contemporary portraiture. Peralta’s work deconstructs traditional notions of portraiture to carry viewers deeper into not only the personas of her subjects, but also the broader culture of Mexico. She deepens her photography by combining her portraiture with cultural physical objects referencing pre-Hispanic influences on contemporary culture.
