Lou Peralta is a Mexican photographer born in 1964. Trained in traditional portrait photography by her family's four generations of photographers, Peralta decided in 2017 to devote herself full time to contemporary photography.

 

She has years of experience examining faces in an effort to bring the “inner” person to the surface for the camera to capture in a singular moment.While there is artistry in her traditional portraiture work, “Disassemble” is Peralta’s first effort at expression as a contemporary artist that transcends an individual and speaks about a nation. Peralta’s images are pieces of a puzzle that, when put together, speak to the diversity and essence that is Mexico.
