Born in Mexico City, 1981. Juan L. Velazquez holds a BA in Communication Sciences and in addition a degree in Photography. Because of his family, education and work he grew up “neither here nor there”, in a liminal state in between the contexts of urban/rural-communities, capital/border-cities, core/periphery-nations.
For over a decade JL has worked in Mexico with the moving image through Film & Cultural Management and as an independent camerographer. With his creative practice he pursues to question the mechanism of perception and representation operated in the tradition of visual documentation by exploring the transient human relationship with the natural world.
