ABOUT ME

REBECA

Rebeca

My name is Rebeca Padilla Cuenca.

I was born in Mexico City where I studied photojournalism for three years and was awarded a scholarship by the city government to learn restoration of historic buildings for three years.

 

Later I worked restoring historic buildings for five years and simultaneously doing photojournalism for an independent newspaper "La mirada independiente". 

This was self-managed and voluntary. I participated in this collective in two books of photojournalism and one individual. I also taught pinhole photography workshopsfor children in the house of culture Griselda Alvarez where I participated in several collective exhibitions and one individual.

 

In 2014 I arrived in Tijuana for family reasons. I was interested in the topic of migration and deportees, where I voluntarily worked with the deported veterans support house and dreamer mom organizations.

 

I started working as a pinhole photography teacher at the Casa de Cultura Altamira and Casa de la Cultura Playas de Tijuana. Volunteer at the Unified U.S Deported Veterans Resource Center with photography, at the peace march with veterans for peace in the state of Sonora.

 

 

I was a preschool teacher where I taught third graders for three years. I am now a Spanish teacher and tutor at Escuela Amistad.

 

I currently live in Rosarito B.C. Municipality south of Tijuana with my husband and daughter Yaocihuatl.I like to learn, teach, read and listen to different types of music. I love the beach,swimming and yoga. I love photography and documenting the culture customs of the place where I live. It is a vital part of my life.
