Biography

Luvia is a Zapotec photographer from Oaxaca, Mexico. Her work primarily focuses on themes of territory, identity, and intimacy. Photography serves as a means to connect and document the female lineage of her family and community. For her, it is a way to portray the worlds to which she belongs, aiming to capture reality from the perspective of contemporary Zapotec women. Her photographs represent inquiries she has about identity as a contemporary woman living and existing in a territory of indigenous communities that are often portrayed from an external perspective. Her goal is to connect and understand the communal as a changing entity, not as a static monolith.

Luvia is a member of Women Photograph and Indigenous Photography and the winner of the inaugural Indigenous Photograph 2021 award. Her work has been featured in both individual and group exhibitions in Mexico City, New York, Chicago, Barcelona, Mallorca, Oaxaca, and Teotitlán del Valle and been published in The New Yorker, Vogue USA, Vogue Mexico and LatAm, Architectural Digest Magazine and The Times, amongst others.
