The  "Charrería" is an expression of the most deeply rooted traditions of Mexico and granted us a very important part of our identity.  The Escaramuza Charra is the greatest representation of the women´s role in our National Sport, where art, traditions, customs and lots of Mexican expressions are involved. I do not pretend to make a book to inform or teach about the history or work of the Escaramuza Charra; this is only a visual testimony, a part of my experience, of my lines and of what my eyes see through the camera. It is a homage to them, to the women that, with their skills and beauty, decorate the arenas of Mexico in a choreography of passion, love and connection with their horses.

My blood
It is photography and graphic art performed during the last  10 years where, thanks to my daughters and their team partners, I found that the "Charrería" becomes familiar, expressive, full of passion, color, movement, drama, accuracy, coordination, bravery, lots of joy, jokes, discipline, teamwork, emotion, sadness, courage, music and adrenalin to the top. As a father of competitors, this turns out into an extreme and unique experience.  
It is a mix of admiration and emotion because of their movements, 
and a professional pleasure working in the images.
