Long recognised nationally and internationally, Kathy Vargas' photography honours her multiple social and cultural inheritances in both subject matter and methods. It weaves together Vargas' Huichol and Zapotec heritages, Catholic upringing, and early exposure to blues, gospel, and rock-and-roll music as inspiration, with an emphasis on the cycle of life/death/acceptance/consolation/rebirth.
