Katia Fuentes was born and raised in Mexico City, where she earned her degree in Art and Communication at the University Nuevo Mundo.

After graduating in 1994 she moved to Boston, Massachusetts, working as a still photographer for the movie “Gallo de Pelea” by Carlos Fuentes Lemus. In Boston she studied photography at Massachusetts College of Art and New England School of Photography for over two years. After living in Boston, she felt too far from her culture, but before moving back to Mexico she decided to take a last look at San Francisco.

Ever since she arrived here, almost five years ago, she has been involved in the Latino art scene of the city, participating in numerous cultural events and art exhibits at the Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts, where she also taught photography for two years.

Her work has always been focused on the social, political, cultural and visual aspects of Mexico, Cuba, Spain and the Mission barrio in San Francisco. She feels influenced by the work of great photographers like Henrri Cartier-Bresson, Sally Mann, Manuel Alvarez Bravo and Sebastian Salgado.

She had shown her work in Boston, Mexico and San Francisco and has being a member of the Photography Center for the last two years, where she developed and printed the entire exhibit Icons & Dualities.
