Javiera Estrada is an American photographer. Was born in Acapulco, Mexico. In her childhood she studied classical music for several years in piano and violin classes. Music still influences her aesthetic perception of the outside world, which she sometimes looks through a filter called “visual lyrics.” The combination of her own bright dreams, memories and reality, formed her view of the world around, reflected on her imagination, creativity and destiny.
She began her photographic career with simple themes and on simple photo equipment that can be purchased at any specialized store, adding to it only a small number of devices not used by ordinary photo lovers, for example, such as a reflector 5 in 1.
Javier’s creative track record consists From the whole “cacophony” of various arts from dance to sculpture, which, ultimately, led her to the art of photography. Being an indefatigable seeker of spiritual harmony in the nature of the inner world, Javier believes that every work of art is a self-portrait, a physical expression of that inner world that exists in each of us, but still has no name. In addition, the fascination with timeless themes, such as life and death, led her to explore the multi-layered space between darkness and light.
Yavier uses the photo as a visual magazine, in which he records events from his life, real and imaginary, and the sound of the camera clicking for it is a signal indicating the moment of connection between reality and ether. The current series of works by Javier “in the bedroom” is an intimate perspective of the space between the subconscious world – the world of dreams and fantasies – and reality. Her latest photographs presented through a woman in the bedroom are a kaleidoscopic burst of color and imagination, intertwined and combined in the simplicity of the body and the immobility of the environment. Currently, Yavier Estrada lives and works in Culver City, California.
