With her work, she prompts contemplation on the choice of being versus societal expectations.
Photography is the medium I use, to build questions around intimate sensations that cross through me from my position as a woman in the culture I inhabit.
I am interested in showcasing different ways in which culture shapes and categorizes us. My intention is to present alternative ways of seeing and being.
The images serve as a way for me to ask myself whether I choose to be or if I am made to be.
