Witnessing Melba Arellanos images is like transporting you to a dimension so real that seems fiction, or at least that´s how I felt when I first saw them in Mexico City during a workshop at Gimnasio de Arte ,Melba, through her travels to regions of his childhood on the road of Acapulco-Zihuatanejo, has been recording spaces, characters and memories that will serve her well for reconciliation with her past, but also they serve us,the viewers,as a little pill of recognition of how little we know of life in contemporary Mexico and its roads. Melba wants to focus his “photographic exploration into everyday life for me that space is physically and mentally places in which we live.”
I can not not think of it as a young Diane Arbus in search of those things that made her “feel”. Melba wants to center her photographic exploration into everyday life, that space that to me represents the physically and mentally places in which we develop ourselves. ” To me, its impossible not to think of it as a young Diane Arbus in search of those things that made her “feel”.Feel empathy, wonder, joy and admiration for these places and people who survive a hard and sometimes unfortunate Mexico with them. Melba also says that she seeks to “make visible how people shape their areas and vice versa, how communities shape their inhabitants.” What may result from these spaces seem creepy, that people are created in places that exist only out of necessity, chance, survival, and many times forgotten.
Some possible answers are definitely in the images of Melba. Alejandro Cartagena.
