“Photography is a way of showing others what I see from my very own perspective.It sure has to do with a trained eye but, to me, it has more to do with the soul.” ~ Alejandro Mirsha Campos Herrera
Alejandro Mirsha Campos Herrera is a twenty-nine year old architect, raised and based in Puebla, Mexico. His photography journey started in early 2010 when he got his first DSLR. Without any previous experience or knowledge on the subject he started capturing images of the world around him, images that would later fill a photoblog called AMCH-Photography.
Fuera de eso, todas las imágenes las saco de Google bajo el entendido de que no me pertenecen. Este blog ha sido descrito de muchas maneras, pero nunca como un blog de fotografía. Si eso es lo que buscan, permítanme dirigirlos a Alejandro y su blog lleno de fotografías super bonitas de nopales, pueblos y pugs.
Y contestando tu pregunta, uso la cámara de mi celular. Ups.
To show the world that there’s a different side of Mexico. Not everything’s bad news and crime. There’s the good side of it too. A side where culture is grown within ourselves from the day we’re born, where moral values are taught way before we can even walk, a side where poverty is not everything you’ll find.
Yes, we have a different side than what’s shown by the media. Mexico is beautiful, and I’m talking about the real Mexico. Forget about Cancun and the other typical Spring Break destinations, sure they’re beautiful but that’s not the real thing. As a friend would say (american btw) “it’s gringo central :/”.
We may not have cities filled with humongous skyscrapers all over but we have places that come alive with color, truth, emotions, and a sense of belonging. Places where people are still friendly and care about each other, something quite rare these days.
I’m not good with words, I have never been. That’s why I speak in a visual way, or at least I try to. I don’t know if this is what is sensed from the photos I post, but I certainly hope so.
This is the Mexico I see, and I want to share it with you.
