Flechazo
by Pia Riverola

Flechazo - ’love at first sight’ - is Pia Riverola’s debut monograph, a photographic love letter to Mexico -
its culture, people and spirited way of life.


‘It’s the gestures, the moments in between, the sometimes hidden parts, the rituals of the past
but even more so the rhythm of the everyday that reveal the heart and soul of a culture.’

special edition including signed print Mercado


Flechazo takes you on a nostalgic journey along Mexican destinations and encounters, capturing its upbeat soul, rich culture, famously lush nature, dreamy beaches and tropical flora- in Riverola’s distinctly captivating and romantic detail. ‘Light and love can turn the mundane into beautiful and the other way around, beauty can become dull without it.’

Born in Barcelona and travelling the globe for her photography, Riverola spent her formative years in Mexico, growing into a photographer, woman, lover, mother - and latest Mexican resident.

‘Mexico became my motherland instantly, my guide and my inspiration. Its people and nature took care of me in a defining moment in my life where it nourished me to become my own self - both personally and professionally. I felt part of it from the first moment I arrived, but it also challenged me to fight passionately for myself and my beliefs, which marked a path of growth for me in every aspect of life. Flechazo is my tribute.’

Starting in 2012, Flechazo is a documentation of 10 years spent across the wide country - from Ixtapa to Oaxaca and Mexico City- characterized by her delicate colour palettes and gentle scenes. A journey of intuition and self-led discovery, the book is a constantly evolving mirror of Riverola’s self, her encounters and state of mind. Resulting in a body of work that is full of love, empathy and a sensuality that highlights the magical details and moments in between Mexican life.

Mexican cities form the chapters that construct the navigation of the book. The hyphenated titles refer to classic movie titles announcing each location and sequence of scenes - whilst allowinging for a pause moment in between photographs. The three letter divides in location names are a reference to airport destinations while traveling.
In each section, fold-out pages create an experience of anticipation. The sequences in the fold outs amplify the cinematic quality of Pia’s photography.
The black backgrounds, reminiscent of celluloid film, refer to Pia’s analogue approach. The index in the back of the book is a reference to contact sheets. Similar to the end titles of a movie, the colophon is mentioned in the back of the book.
