Lorena Mostajo is an interdisciplinary artist living and working between the United States, México, and more recently, Bolivia. Her work focuses on the ways in which vernacular and historical photographs, national imaginaries, global and local economies, immigration, and tourism intersect. She is also interested in the ways in which photographic images create hybrid genres and languages with other disciplines. She earned an MFA in Photography from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a BA in Hispanic American Literature from the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. She is also the founder of Taller California, a micro press for artists and writers from the Tijuana-San Diego region. In addition to her artistic practice, she has written about photography and co-edited two books with Mara Fortes, one about Chris Marker and the first Spanish translation of Amos Vogel’s Film As a Subversive Art.
