Las Mujeres Flores




Eunice Adorno (1982, Mexico-City) was given permission to enter the intimate spaces of a group of Mennonite women living in Mexico. The emotional bonds between these women, beautifully captured by Adorno, result in pictures that reveal a peaceful and harmonious atmosphere. In a perspective of their lives that has not frequently been portrayed, we are able to see past the stereotype of a rigid community. Being part of a conservative and religious family, Adorno is able to perceive an element of her own history in the traditional colours and customs of the Mennonites. Communication may take place through simple Spanish dialogues and signalled gestures, but there are deeper conversations too, which are conducted by means of shared feelings that have been captured by her lens: feelings of passion, friendships, secrets, pleasures and amusements.
