Photographs by Ruben Ochoa at the Peasant Museum

The photo exhibition “360 degrees,” signed by the Mexican Ruben Ochoa, was opened on Monday evening at the Romanian Peasant Museum from Bucharest, in the presence of the Ambassador of Mexico to Bucharest, Maria Cristina de la Garza Sandoval, Agerpres informs.

“It is a privilege and an honour for me to be at the Romanian Peasant Museum, to introduce the exhibition <<360 degrees>>. The author is Ruben Ochoa, a young and talented artist, awarded at several national and international contests. The exhibition has already been presented successfully in 12 cities from Latin America,” the Ambassador said. In “360 degrees,” Ruben Ochoa presents in 36 photos a panorama of the daily life and of the culture of Mexico. Therefore, each photo is accompanied by a short descriptive text, which makes the connection with the next photo.

The exhibition was opened as a result of an invitation addressed by the firm Sony from Mexico to the artist to make an exhibition where the quality of the images taken with the digital cameras DSC-S40, DSC-F828 and DSC-V3 of this brand, can be appreciated.

Ruben Ochoa made a detailed investigation prior to embarking on this project which, in its final version, includes a wide range of images which present both personal belongings of Frieda Kahlo, and scenes from the daily life, urban areas, pre-Hispanic ceremony places, and also the photo of the painter Francisco Toledo that Ruben Ochoa took in Oaxaca. Ruben Ochoa has also participated to exhibitions in Mexico, the United States and Spain, and received several national and international prizes. In July 2007 he received the white-black photo award of the foundation Volpe-Stessens, at “MERCOSUR International Art Salon.” The exhibition was inaugurated in 2005 at the National Auditorium from Ciudad de Mexico and was visited by over 300,000 persons. Under the patronage of the Foreign Relations Ministry from Mexico, the exhibition is now on a tour through various cities from Europe. In 2007, it was successfully presented in Great Britain, Germany, Russia and Austria. In Bucharest, the exhibition is opened until September 30.
