Photo exhibition ‘Las Mujeres Flores’ inaugurated at Corozal House of Culture

Posted: Wednesday, May 2, 2018. 3:30 p.m. CST.

By BBN Staff: The Embassy of Mexico in Belize today announced the inauguration of the photographic exhibition Las Mujeres Flores (The Flower Women) by Eunice Adorno, which will be presented at the Corozal House of Culture from May 9 to June 10, 2018.

The exhibition will be opened on May 9, at 10:00 a.m.

Las Mujeres Flores represents an interesting look at the life stories of Mexican Mennonite women who allowed the author to photograph intimate spaces and daily experiences within the Mennonite communities in Mexico, in particular those of Nuevo Ideal, Durango, and La Honda, Zacatecas.

Mexican photographer Eunice Adorno was able to gain access to these isolated groups, living among them and documenting their customs.

Intrigued particularly by the Mennonite women she met, Adorno made their inner world and their lives the focus of her work, following them through their daily rituals as they would elaborately braid and coil their hair, play with their children, and work at home.

Photographer, Eunice Adorno was born in Mexico City.

She has won the Fernando Benitez National Cultural Journalism Award in the field of photojournalism in 2010 for The Flower Women project.

She started her career as a photojournalist more than ten years ago, and now she works on long-term documentary initiatives.
