Daniela Rossell

Daniella Rossell captures the totally decadent wealth of the Mexican aristocracy in her series Ricas y Famosas. These photos depict a minority of ultra-rich Mexican women in their domestic spaces - some would say their “golden cages”. Most Documentary photography considering Mexican social systems concentrates on the largest and poorest segment of the population. Rossell’s participants initially agreed to be photographed for this project. After the photos garnered critical press, many participants requested to pull out of the project.
