I grew up eating pozole and Midwestern nice. I’m interested in giving voice to that which has been repressed, finding catharsis from the things that haunt us and mass-produced toy cameras (just kidding about that last one). I use old and new photo processes.
Description of my work…
In this series, I explored the duality of a bi-cultural identity. Besides exploring my own understanding of how my Midwestern and Mexican cultures make up who I am, I was interested finding people with similar experiences. I sought out other people who have also grown up straddling two cultures. I have asked my subjects to choose objects that relate to the culture with which they most identify and thereafter photographed these items.
