Mary Rosa Jimenez was born in Lima, Peru from a Dominican father and English mother. In 1988 she moved to Paris where she lived until 2012 when she started dividing her time between France and the Dominican Republic.
Her work explores both urban environments and her favorite themes are the reflections captured on shop windows and glass. Through these images she temps the viewer into an unusual and original world where the real and unreal sit side by side.
There are two marked tendencies in Mary Rosa’s work, one is color, wich is a natural for her having grown up in a tropical island. The other is fashion, the result of covering as a photographer and reporter the Paris catwalks for over 6 years.
