Remnants of Home.
My work explores the nature of Latino culture and my neighborhood spaces,
in which the struggles of asserting my cultural identity questions my own role as a Mexican-American. Spanish is presented as a dominant language in the
neighborhood I grew up in where home is depicted as a territory for investigating studies of spatial elements through architecture that I find important to the home and neighborhood. There is a banality and deadpan approach in the way I photograph spaces in my neighborhood and how I might struggle with the idea of self through these environments. here is a sentimental approach in the way each photograph is represented as a neighborhood landscape, identity as personal versus identity as place. This notion of home almost becomes a fragment of layers and experiences while also growing up in one of the most cultural, but harsh neighborhoods in Chicago.
