Sonora, land of contrasts

These words were pronounced by Gustavo Romero Carpena (+) in the act  inauguration of the first Sonoran landscape exhibition, in October 1982 at the Casa de la Cultura de Sonora:

“Memo Moreno began as a photographer in 1955, nurturing himself from  advice from his father, Guillermo Moreno Ruiz, a meticulous passionate about  photography, receiving a large baggage of knowledge of the trade.


Photographically, he has tried everything, because he knew he couldn't find the  beginning of the endless road that is photography, until he felt  shaken by the life force of the landscape, where he came to find his calling  of artist.

Among other things, the landscape imposes on the photographer, but, with no other direction than the  whim, began a long wandering through all corners of the state, to  bring us unprecedented landscapes of great vitality.

Here we present some of them, as a small sample of this  Sonoran photographer and his deep love and devotion to our landscape.”

Gustavo was a great connoisseur of photography and creativity. Include your words in  this work is a modest acknowledgment of his memory.

“This exhibition is designed to publicize part of Sonora, its  contrasts and production, poor would be my attempt if I tried to show all the  I've been in a few pictures." - Memo Moreno.
