Rocio Lunaire is a moonstruck version of Rocio Saucedo.
Born in Mexico City, 1982. I grew up in the outskirts of Mexico City. I earned a photography degree as a teen, all while alternating between odd jobs and literacy campaigns throughout indigenous communities. I dropped out of Hispanic Literature in college and spent much of my twenties traveling the globe, making a living trough spells as a photojournalist with the agency Global Press and eventually making Barcelona my home.
In 2008 I earned my Masters in Photojournalism from the Autonomus University of Barcelona.
In 2011 I crashed one of Gregory Crewdson’s classes at the Yale University School of Art, which made me worry more about art than by news. My projects have since focused in the nature of magical realism and intuition. Exploring female themes such as identity and sex.
In 2013-2015 I collaborated in the Xconfessions project with renowned feminist pornographer Erika Lust.
In 2016 I lost my Contax in the dessert in San Luis Potosí. Somehow I did't get the hint.
From 2017-2018 I made a photographic art project in the Sonoran dessert exploring my mestizo yaqui identity, native healing rites, intergenerational trauma and the spirit of the land. I ended up with no photographs and with notes for a novel.
Since 2019 I've been studying creative writting in the Ateneu Barcelonés in Barcelona.
I am currently working on my debut novel.
I am still available for interesting art projects. For more information feel free to get in touch!
