EL OTRO, EL MISMO

Portraits 2021

EL OTRO, EL MISMO 01
Doppelgänger / Polaroid Studies



Among a plethora of symbols in the visual world, mirrors and doubles are the ones that truly speak to me. Mirroring and doubling, conveys some sense of human place in the world; “No man is an island” expressed in its basic form.

EL OTRO, EL MISMO 02
Rebirth



Coffin Womb. Life Death Rebirth. Fear Anxiety Beauty? A representation, a statement, a moment to pause?
In ancient Egypt, pharaohs crossed their arms diagonally when they were mummified, symbolizing Osiris, the king of the netherworld or god of the dead. Crossed arms indicated the mummy's gender. Only males were mummified with their arms crossed. Women were mummified with their arms at their sides. Here, my female model perverts this context and embodies an otherworldly sense of renewal.

Puppetry



Bound By [Intentionally Left Blank].
At some point in our lives, we have all been taken advantage of emotionally, physically, psychologically or financially, by those who think they have the joystick and the ability to control and manipulate others.
