Vulcano México is a collection of nearly twenty photographs of medium and large format, in which Rafael Doníz shows a Mexican territory plenty of volcanoes: “For me, they are identity of my ‘Mexicanity’, that’s why I chose this theme”. It visually tells the story of his voyages through this land of volcanoes, crowned with snow and lakes, and its petrified flows, among which the Popocatépetl, the Iztaccíhuatl, the Pico de Orizaba or Citlaltépetl, the Malinche, the Paricutín and the Xitle stand out.
The Vulcano México series, by Rafael Doníz, who was a student of Manuel Alvarez Bravo (1902-2002), consists of approximately 200 images, of which he made a careful selection for this exhibition.
