Oscar Fernando Gomez Rodriguez

Exhibition: BPB Curated: New Ways of Looking

Oscar Fernando Gomez Rodriguez (b.1970) is an artist who lives and works in Mexico. He began as a wedding photographer, but supplemented his income by driving a taxi. The window of the taxi became the frame for his work as he travelled across Moneterrey, Mexico documenting life on the street as he knew it. The work is tinged with sadness as it was initially intended to be an album of urban photographs for his daughter who tragically died just after birth.

Gomez has exhibited at San Nicolas de la Garza Cultural Centre and the Salon de la Fotografia de Neuvo Leon. He is hoping to eventually own his own taxi.
