Omar Robles who is a New York-based photographer loves to travel through the world and document dancers in different countries. We all know the fact that Donald Trump became the President of America. In one his speech he said “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best”. After hearing his speech Omar decided to visit this country next. “I set myself to prove those words wrong and show how beautiful Mexico and its people really are,” he said.
He teamed up with FujiFilm, contacted a good number of local dancers and went to Mexico City to shoot. “The rhetoric that permeates our times is sadly about division and segregation,” the photographer said. “The warmth with which the people of Mexico received me and the dancers as we shot along the streets truly inspired me.”
Robles also had the opportunity to witness Mexico City during its Day of the Dead celebrations. “Bold and vibrant colors everywhere, mirroring the characters of the people who call this city home,” he recalled. “The same who curiously stood by while I photographed the dancers and on many occasions even offered ovations after witnessing our shoots.”
