Photographs by Rosa Villoslada, exhibiting alongside Fidalis Buehler · Exhibit runs from Mar 7 - Apr 17

ARTIST STATEMENT:

I capture those moments, situations, events, and more, that will make a difference in our reality in this world.

As a photographer, it is my intention to make people aware of the different circumstances that we create in our daily life.

I am a witness, like all of us are, and in the act and process of learning myself, I am sharing with and educating others.

I spent one year documenting women farm workers in Yakima Valley. I followed them in all of their different tasks and jobs, during different times and weather. These particular photos are about the hops harvest.  From seeding, planting and harvesting from April to August. Women are the main workers in the valley, they spend long days in the fields in hot and cold weather. Most of them are migrants, mothers, sisters, and fathers for their kids. Their work is hard.  Most of us don’t really have knowledge about what it takes to have fresh fruits, vegetables or even beer on our table. 

My photography is an act of solidarity to my own generation, to the society, to stop creating indifference, and disseminate love and humanization for our future generations.

ARTIST BIO: 

Rosa Villoslada was born near Trujillo, Peru and later emigrated to Milan, Italy after high school.  After many years of working in retail she moved to the USA in 2004. She completed her diploma of photography at Mid Florida Tech in Orlando, Florida. 

Rosa grew up in an agricultural area in northern Peru, where her parents were farm workers. As a photographer, she dedicates her attention to documentary, agriculture, landscapes, and portraits. 

Rosa moved to Washington State in 2015 with her husband and two daughters.  She spent one year documenting women farm workers in Yakima Valley.

Rosa is currently living in Salt Lake City.

About the library

NOTE: The Main Library's Rooftop Terrace is closed through 2020 for repairs and renovations.

Salt Lake City's Main Library, designed by internationally-acclaimed architect Moshe Safdie in conjunction with VCBO Architecture, opened in February 2003 and remains one of the most architecturally unique structures in Utah. This striking 240,000 square-foot structure houses more than 500,000 books and other materials, yet serves as more than just a repository of books and computers. It reflects and engages the city's imagination and aspirations. The structure embraces a public plaza, with shops and services at ground level, reading galleries above, and a 300-seat auditorium.

A multi-level reading area along the Glass Lens at the southern facade of the building looks out onto the plaza with stunning views of the city and Wasatch Mountains beyond. Spiraling fireplaces on four floors resemble a column of flame from the vantage of 200 East and 400 South. The Urban Room between the Library and the Crescent Wall is a space for all seasons, generously endowed with daylight and open to magnificent views.
