The Poor Little Rich Girls of Mexico
“The narrative of Mexico as our impoverished and drug cartel–ridden neighbor dominates most news coverage in America, but that’s only one part of a large and diverse country. Photographer Daniela Rossell brings us tales of the polar opposite segment of Mexican society with her series Ricas y Famosas, which depicts the children of Mexico’s most privileged class of society.
Coppelman’s series ‘The Poor Little Rich Girls of Mexico’, is an interesting body of work to consider in relation to my equestrian fashion story. Its interesting to see the vast diversity in this group of images which hold it together as a body of work. This is something for me to take note of; consider having a vast diversity of images to hold them together as a great, interesting story. Maybe not include similar images? If you do, think carefully about what you’re saying by this, resonate.
Something which will be comparatively different between this series of photography, and my fashion story, is that these images could be placed together in any order and still achieve the intended outcome and thoughts. Where as my fashion story needs to have a definite storyline and layout, the narrative I create through the images is very important.
