ONWARD: Why are you a photographer?
Alejandra: As a teenager, I studied theatre for many years. I wanted to become an actress to be able to play multiple roles and lives. Later in college, I majored in Sociology as an attempt to continue exploring these roles in a more theoretical way….

More than twenty-five years ago, a group of Boston-area artists came together in response to the AIDS crisis, which was claiming the lives of so many of their friends, fellow artists and colleagues. They responded by creating and organizing the first ARTcetera, a contemporary art auction held at Boston City Hall, to raise money for AIDS Action Committee.
Over the years, ARTcetera has grown to become one of New England’s premier art auctions and an essential funding source for AIDS Action. And, while the AIDS epidemic looks nothing like it did 25 years ago, this epidemic and AIDS Action’s work are far from over.
Once again, the arts community and AIDS Action will celebrate our extraordinary partnership in this fight to stop the epidemic by preventing new infections and optimizing the health of those living with HIV.
Only 7 days left to bid online for the artwork at ARTcetera Auction.
I invite you all to visit the current online paddle auction to see the work. Please bid if you like it! I am thrilled to see my photograph, Socci in Class, 2012. included among such a wonderful group of artists!

About the exhibition: 30 by 30—a thirty day, online group exhibition featuring 30 contemporary photographers worldwide selected from the FotoVisura Photo of the Day archive. The selection of work exemplifies the beauty and diversity that we believe coexist within the FotoVisura community.
Since the fall of 2010, FotoVisura.com—an international self-publishing platform and resource for art and documentary photography— celebrates the work of its members by selecting a “Photo of the Day” from the Public Archive. Featured on the Home Page, the goal is to celebrate an image taken by FotoVisura members’ who have taken it upon themselves to self-publish and share their personal projects, as well as their FotoVisura Profile. Each image reveals the myriad of personal projects created by students, alumni and emerging photographers from an international community to reveal what is next in photography today.
