ANA GEORGINA AMPUDIA

Photographer, Mexico.

Ana Georgina Ampudia, best known as Yoya, grew up knowing one day she was going to become a photographer. Her grandfather, founder of The Mexico Photographic Club, taught her the art of being behind the lenses. She bought her first camera at the age of 12 and since then she calls herself a photographer. Ana has a degree in photography from the School of Arts and Entertainment in Madrid. She also has a certificate in history from USD, the University of San Diego. She is currently pursuing a degree in communications in Mexico City. The first thing Ana needs in the morning is a cup of coffee. She is a huge admirer of photographer Annie Leibovitz’s work, and feels inspired by the sixties. The golden item inside her working kit is a roll camera, which she only uses on special occasions. “Developing that roll and seeing what’s inside is pure happiness,” she said. Her schooling makes Ana a great photographer, but her instincts and pure talent make her one of a kind.
