Rogelio Pereda

has been a member since Sep 2006 and goes by pereda.

I was born in Mexico City, a modern megalopolis where I live and work with yearning and passion for unknown territories. My photographic work explores notions of identity, gender, and diversity. I have been a scientist working in medicinal chemistry at the National University of Mexico and also an avid photographer for more than three decades. In 2011, a selection of my series "LGBT Mexicans from the 21st Century" was awarded Second Prize in the category "Gender" of Pride Photo Award.
