Alejandra Cardenas Palacios
Photographer

Born and raised in Mexico City, I developed a love for photography during my late teens, just when I was about to enter film school. There, I specialized in cinematography. I recently graduated and I’m currently working as a cinematographer and filmmaker in general.

Although the nature of my career forces me to focus on moving images, I believe that a still image is, yet, so much more strong. I try to capture images that allow to imagine a full context or story out of just a few elements.
