The picture of this girl traveled around the world because of her exotic beauty, which is a typical feature of Mexicans, and it went really far because she was designated as “The most beautiful girl in Mexico”.
The picture was taken 6 years ago in the State of Chiapas, but, it took time for her fame to increase. A few months have passed since the picture went viral on the social networks, it collected a lot of likes and was shared among a lot of users.
Since 2011 the portrait’s author put the following message as a heading of the picture:
“Inside a village, located in the mountain range of Chiapas, I found the most astonishing eyes a person ever saw. The beauty of this little girl represents all the beauty that can be found in Chiapas, because everywhere you look and everything you see is astonishing…”
Diego Huerta is the name of the person that took the picture. He traveled all around the world. He is a professional Mexican photographer although he has been living in Austin, Texas, where his studio is located.
Diego is really young, he is in his twenties, and during the past five years he has been dedicating a lot of time to take pictures of native Mexican communities.
He started in Oaxaca, with the project “Inside Oaxaca” and then he portrayed the magical environment of “Guelaguetza”, the most representative annual celebration of the state, where many Mexican Beauties can be seen in a small place, surrounded by lots of tourists and villagers.
Diego has told the media that he was marveled by the colorful landscapes and natives and that is why he has been interested in that project. Also, he was involved in it because of the possibility of returning to his origins and documenting everything for the world to see it.
His project “Native Nation” reproduces the environment of more than 50 native communities in Mexico.
The main purpose of Diego Huerta, besides of sharing the inherent beauty that can be found in Mexico, is to make Mexicans feel proud of their origins and traditions and to give the necessary support to the countrymen, the natives that marvelously represent their nation.
However, even with this project and with other artists’ projects Mexico faces continued discrimination that exists since their independentists times.
Racism against the native people is a common thing in the United States and in Mexico as well.
Nevertheless, the problem of our modern society is that people whether in their ignorance or in their lack of empathy are absorbed by technology or social networks.
Diego has travelled for 6 years around the native Mexican communities. One day, Huerta received a message from the sister of Liz, the most beautiful Mexican girl, inviting him to Chiapas.
Diego travelled to meet them again, after 6 years without getting together.
He said that he was astonished by the beauty of Adriana, the girl that he portrayed with his professional camera years before.
Despite the fact that Adriana is deaf-mute, she demonstrated her extremely beautiful smile to the world again. She speaks with the help of sign language.
The moment they reunited, she gave him a huge hug because she was really happy to see him again.
To captivate us
even more, Diego Huerta said these words that made everyone that did not
believe in Mexican beauty thinking: “Without a doubt Mexican women’s beauty is
far beyond what any worldwide beauty contest can give us”.
