    About Werner Segarra

    Werner Segarra is a Puerto Rican of German descent who lived his childhood and adolescence in various countries throughout the world. These experiences greatly influenced his artistic sensibility and his respect for diverse cultures.

    Ongoing immersion in Huásabas, a small town in Sonora, Mexico, particularly enabled him to express his visual sentiments. The opportunity led to the capture of exquisite and unusual images in his recent body of work, which was shown as a portfolio and became a book.

    Vaqueros de la Cruz del Diablo (2018 Trilce Ediciones) encompasses two decades’ worth of vibrant and intimate images of this rural town of 1,000 inhabitants.

    In Huásabas, the photographer interacted with the people and captured the human essence and traditions of this singular community nestled in the Sierra Madre Mountains. His close relationship with and love of the town is reflected in this collection of images that portray the traditional way of life for los vaqueros (the cowboys), including their families, religious customs, culture, work, cuisine, architecture, and rugged environment.

    Segarra’s unique approach to telling stories through photography is demonstrated in individual prints showing different aspects of the town’s life. The purpose of this project is to honor and demonstrate the beauty and hardship of the everyday life of these people, who carry on traditions that are quietly disappearing.

    The photography for this project spans the mid 1980s until the present, following the lives of the subjects in intimate detail, from the day-to-day to the major moments in life.

    Primary media include 6 x 17, 6 x 7 and 35 mm. The process involves 80% transparency and 20% negative, utilizing drum-scanned output to digital inkjet prints. The artist is solely responsible for all photography, scans and prints.

    A professional photographer for more than 30 years, Segarra has participated in numerous group and individual exhibitions in various international galleries and museums.
