We met la comadre Dulce the first year we moved to New York in 2006 when she had her The Real Story of the Superheroes photo exhibit at Queens Museum. We were charmed by the fun and function in her work, dedicated to elevating the labor and industriousness of Mexicanos in New York. The project is now published in book form. Her latest series of portraits titled “Historias del Paraíso”consist of 20 images taken in the now-closed-to-the-public Museo de Historia Natural in Puebla. The images are theatrical and playfully forboding. But for all of her photography accomplishments and awards, Dulce also knows how to throw intensely addictive parties, she won New York over with her long-standing Fresa Salvaje. She is a creative force in curating whether it's art or dance parties from Mexico City to New York City.
