Verónica G. Cárdenas

Verónica G. Cárdenas is a documentary photographer based in the southernmost region in Texas known as the Rio Grande Valley, or The Valley. This is a place that could be seen as neither the U.S. nor México, but something in between, which also perfectly describes some aspects of Cárdenas’ identity.

Migration issues are a recurring theme that she explores. Her work has been shown at the United Nations, exhibited at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, (UTRGV), South Texas College, San Benito Museum, The Weslaco Museum, Festival of International Books and Arts, FESTIBA, among others. She is an International Women’s Media Foundation fellow, and an Eddie Adams XXXI alumni.
