I’m an immigrant just like my father and his father before him. And just so many of the people of the people I run into every day.
My work reflects on forced immigration: when a person or a family has to leave their country for problems outside their control such as those of a political, economic or religious nature. Luggage is the symbol of what my work represents. Luggage goes through different situations and emotions, looking for a better life.
It is the story of my mother, a woman who had everything and lost it for love of her daughter and for her dignity.
Today lives in Bariloche, Patagonia Argentina.
In rustic environment and with an extreme climate.
She kept that cute little thing.
It is called a rubber tablecloth this work, because I photograph my mother's precious memories, on a simple tablecloth.
Violence in the intimate relations.
The destructive silence of gender violence against women, the loss of autonomy and integrity of one's identity. The thin line between love and violence in intimate relationships.
'The dresss' is a photograph inspired by the Ni Una Menos movement that originated in Argentina in 2015 against femicide after a series of violent crimes committed against women. The movement speaks up for all those women that have suffered attacks both physical and psychological. It says with images what society has been keeping quiet until now, and it wants to keep quiet no longer.
'The dress' is my tribute to all those women who have suffered or are currently suffering any sort of violence.
My personal focus as a photographer has always been drawn to the feminine form. Looking inward towards my own experiences and those of women who have crossed my life and deeply affected me.
Women surviving underwater is a metaphor that explores the feelings of many women : fearlessly jumping into the unknown, the ocean, a pool, drowning or feeling vulnerable, and lost at times. Feelings swimming all around us on a daily basis. Strong or calm, all are there surfacing, fighting to be heard and understood. Feelings found. Contradictions. All being part of the feminine experience.
Those feelings navigate in my work. Also water is an important element in my work. It’s life giving. Energy giving. It heals, cleanses, breathes new life.
The necessary equilibrium we need for a healthy life. To not be overwhelmed by emotions. The delicate balance between what makes us fell good and makes us feel bad.
The simple and Rustic life of Patagonia, a place that seems to have gotten stuck in time. A place where technology has not taken over the lives of the locals.Time here is eternal, the weather is fierce, and friendship unmovable.
