Lou Peralta (b. 1964) is based in Mexico City. She earned an undergraduate degree in graphic design with a major in editorial design from the Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City, and completed a specialty course in contemporary photography at the Node Center for Curatorial Studies. In 2017, she was named a brand ambassador by Fujifilm Mexico. Her work has appeared in publications such as LensCulture, VISOR, Milenio, CEO North America and Catalyst: Interviews.
After more than 30 years as a portrait photographer, in 2017 Lou Peralta decided to devote herself full time to creating her own contemporary photography.
In addition to her Contemporary Photography practice, Peralta is working with her father Héctor Herrera on a book project celebrating the family photography business that spans four generations on its Centennial anniversary.
Lou is a Fujifilm Mexico Brand Ambassador, joining a worldwide group of “X-Photographers”. Most recently Fujifilm generously shared examples of their new Instax printers with which she is experimenting now and able to share images with her subjects in her portraiture projects.
