Zahira Aragon was born in southwestern Spain in 1983. A restless soul from a young age, Aragon made no hesitation to leave home once legality was upon her. At 18 she moved to England and joined a professional motorcycle team before continuing her secondary education at Rider University in New Jersey. Aragon’s studies ranged from advertising and public relations to photography and anthropology. During her years of university, Aragon worked as a horseback riding instructor in Texas, where she was first exposed to the rich western culture which has so greatly influenced her life.
Photography allows Aragon to capture glimpses of everyday beauty she experiences through her travels. Through her photographs, she is able to transport the viewer into the singular moments and situations which have made her life so special.
