Arlene Mejorado

Cali-born photographer Arlene Mejorado grew up making fond and formative memories on weekend visits to pulgas and swap meets with her mother. Since relocating to San Antonio, Mejorado seeks out such places for their cultural vibrancy and the characters that populate them. For her, these spaces, these bustling outdoor markets, comprise a kind of far-flung home that she can visit anytime she craves “visually rich scenes intertwined with labor and social engagement.” In “Pulga Portraits,” a continuation of her ongoing photo-ethnographic project “Califas Lens, San Anto Heart: Outside Looking In,” Mejorado zeroes in on Southwest San Antonio’s Poteet Flea Market and the resulting pieces are bursting with life, capturing moments in time where the truly singular arises from looking deeply at the everyday. Free, 7pm Sat, Sept. 10, R Space, 110 E. Lachapelle St., (210) 214-1608, ladybasegallery.com.
