Soy, De Aqui y Alla

Soy, De Aquí y Allá (SDAYA) is a body of work that introduces my story as a Mexican immigrant in the Unites States of America and how I find beauty in people and places that may not be the typical beauty standard. SDAYA is a reflection of my past and present experiences. The combination of images that I collected in every trip and how they braid into my childhood, teenage, and adult life.

 

Soy, De Aquí y de Allá strives to humanize those who are often forgotten or ignored. Those working as street vendors in the USA and Mexico are part of a culture of providing service while thriving in a society that often fails them or criminalizes them.

 

Soy, De Aquí y Allá, is a love letter to my family and street vendors.
