Daniela Rossell
1973, Mexico City. Lives and works in Mexico City

Rossell’s photographs draw equally from the traditions of society
portraiture and sociological documentary. Set in the living rooms, parlor, and boudoirs of Mexico City’s upper clases, the images typically focus on women surrounded by their material possessions and artifiacts of taste.
The photographs depict social aspiration through cultural acquisition.
