I have taken pictures all my life but when we moved to America the camera became the tool connecting me to the strange place I found myself living in. It became a way to actively work with what I was seeing, somehow to take it into my hands, to translate it into my language, and, in the end, to be able to call it home and to communicate it. The pictures I take are very close to home. Some are composites of many photographs, others are multilayered in them selves; some hold more than one moment in time, some won't fix you to a certain point of view. This way I try to be closer to my memory and resist to suffocate it with an unchangeable image.
