DANIELA ROSSELL RICAS Y FAMOSAS PDF

The photographic subjects are representing themselves. While Rossell follows a strong tradition of Mexican photography, she differs by showing the upper classes, rather than the poverty stricken. What is most interesting about her images is that the women dress and pose themselves. Rossell is not an outsider to these women. On the one hand, she sees that they represent the pitfalls of Mexican society. However, she also has empathy for the women, because she understands that they are somewhat trapped in their roles.

The women who are in the photographs were originally pleased with the ways they were presented. They were wearing their favorite clothes and were in their favorite places of their houses - much like many of the photos women take. When the book was released and showed her many pictures side by side, it caused a lot of negative press. The cumulative effect of the photographs was detrimental, and changed the meaning of the photos.

They felt they had overexposed their lives. They really want to look American…and they go to a lot of work to accomplish that. The photographs present many fascinating talking points for viewers to ponder and discuss.

But why are these spaces determined to be feminine? Were they created by women? For women? What ways should women seek to portray themselves and what is empowering women?

Where do we find our role models? From tv and magazines? How am I portraying myself to others? What are my motives in presenting myself in this way? Who and what are my role models, and am I living up to my full potential? I think it is important for women to look from the outside in and reevaluate where we place our value. While the holiday season can be inundated with materiality, we must remember that things will not make us happy like people will.

The print belongs to the series Rich and Famous which comprises images made by Rossell between and depicting members of the wealthy Mexican ruling class. The artist encouraged her sitters to pose as they desired, creating fantasy images complete with extravagant costumes and props. The performative aspect of the photographs is heightened by their theatrical settings. Rossell grew up in privileged circumstances in Mexico City and the subjects of Rich and Famous are her family members, friends and acquaintances. Many of the subjects are relatives of politicians who served under disgraced former President Carlos Salinas de Gortari born ; President , whose tenure was beset by allegations of political and financial corruption.

Medusa (Ricas y Famosas)

These enviroments are sumptuously decorated, brimming with objects, gold covered statues, zebra patterned carpets, living and stuffed animals. The"feminine" attitude of these women is really a desire to appear languid, sexy or fatale. But these visual stereotypic trappings of a social class, that oozes wealth and power are critically deconstructed by Rossell. These subjects that she puts under the spotlights, in many cases friends and acquaintances - her mother worked as a servant in a large villa - appear as colourful parodies of the Mexican upper middle class and of the education that she received. There is, however, no didactic tendency or moralistic judgement in these works, but rather a strong humoristic element and an evident empathy which together determine the camera angles. A reference to performance is also present in her work: at the beginning of her project the girls themselves were not other than ornaments among the others in the house.
