Comments

"This series was inspired by the life and work of Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz a 17th century Mexican nun who was one of the greatest poets and intellectuals of the American continent. She created the most renowned salon of her time from behind the bars of her cloistered cell And in that cell she studied science and philosophy, wrote poems, plays and music, and championed women's rights to intellectual and spiritual freedom. In the end after resisting valiantly for over twenty years, she was silenced by the Inquisition  It is my hope that these images will help break that silence so that we may once again 'hear her with our eyes' This work is dedicate to women everywhere who, whatever their confines, prevail. They are out hope....Sor Juana's if and work seem to me to be enormously relevant today, particularly for women, because it is the story of a very courageous and gifted woman living and fighting for intellectual and spiritual freedom,, not unlike the brave women in Iran and Africa, Ciudad Juarez, or New Orleans for that matter, who are basically fighting the same fight across continents and centuries-and who have still not won. It's also relevant as a cautionary tale about the oppressive side of prevailing ideologies, whether it be the inquisition or the Taliban..." Josephine Sacabo. During her 36-year career her work has been featured in over 40 gallery and museum exhibition in the U.S., Europe and Mexico. She has been the recipient of multiple awards and is included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the George Eastman House, the International Center of Photography, the Smithsonian Museum, The Library of Congress, among others. Sacabo divides her tie between New Orleans and Mexico. Both place inform her work
