Rocío Saucedo Johansson, aka Chio Lunaire, Mexico City 1982
Growing up in the outskirts of Mexico City, I earned a photography degree as a teen, all while alternating between odd jobs and literacy campaigns throughout indigenous communities. I spent much of my twenties traveling the globe, making a living trough spells as a photojournalist with the agency Global Press and eventually making Barcelona my home.
In 2011 I crashed one of Gregory Crewdson’s classes at the Yale University School of Art, which had a huge impact in my work. My projects have since focused in the nature of magical realism and intuition. Exploring female themes such as identity, fashion, and sex.
In 2013-2014 I collaborated in the Xconfessions project with renowned feminist pornographer Erika Lust.
Currently I'm developing a photographic art project in Yaqui territory in the Sonoran dessert while working commercially in Barcelona.
