Growing up existing between two cultures created an area of in-betweenness, of partially belonging while simultaneously not being enough. Having an immigrant, Ecuadorian father, and a White mother while growing up in the Midwest has created uncertainty about my cultural identity. My artwork is a narrative of my bicultural identity and explores cultural identity through beauty, family dynamics, and doubt through my lived experiences. Through photography, I create narratives to bring complex topics of biculturalism such as gender roles, fetishization, stereotypes, and generational trauma to light. I demonstrate the confusion I experience while simultaneously claiming my identity by questioning what it means to be Latina.
