Somewhere in Between is an ongoing portrait series documenting the migrant experience in the American South. The subjects in this work represent a community that is misrepresented and rarely included in American fine art.
As a Mexican immigrant, I am constantly questioning what it means to be American. Through photographing individuals who share a similar experience as my own, I am attempting to create a more honest representation of our complexities and our collective struggle to reconcile what is lost and gained in culture, language, and history. This series rejects the common notion in the migrant community that we are neither from here or there (ni de aquí, ni de allá). It embraces and celebrates the journey of finding our identity while navigating between two worlds.
