Pedro Meyer is a multifaceted photographer, who, alongside his work as an artist, has been working to raise awareness of South American photography. Born in Madrid in 1935, Meyer moved with his family to Mexico, which he considers his homeland. 1963 marked the beginning of the most productive phase in his career, when he founded the Mexican Council of Photography. He has been working exclusively with photography since 1974. He has taught in various schools and ateliers, worked for prestigious journals and organizations and received many awards and fellowships. In 1990 he turned to contemporary technology and the digital processing of photos and images. He is founder and President of the Pedro Meyer Foundation, which is committed to contributing to the research and interpretation of photography within the framework of new technologies.
