Artist’s Project: Dulce Pinzón

By Dulce Pinzón

Dulce Pinzón’s photographs pay homage to the unsung—and often unseen—Mexican immigrants in New York City who send the bulk of their earnings back to their families and communities in Mexico. Learn more about Pinzón’s series here.

Dulce Pinzón was born in Mexico City and studied at the Universidad de Las Americas in Puebla, Mexico, Indiana University in Pennsylvania, and New York’s International Center of Photography. Pinzón’s photographic series, which are often inspired and informed by questions of political and cultural identity, have been exhibited in the U.S., Europe, Mexico, South America, and Australia. In 2002, Pinzón won the prestigious Jovenes Creadores grant for her work; she is also the recipient of a 2006 fellowship from the New York Foundation for the Arts.
