Artist Statement:
My Dual World series was inspired by WEB DeBois and his concept of Double-Consciousness. The in-camera, double-exposure photos demonstrate the challenge of finding your own path as a Chicanx artist in the suburbs of Chicago.
Relationship to Chicago:
I've lived in the Chicagoland area for my entire life. I attended graduate school at Columbia College Chicago and taught video production for Community TV Network. I currently work and live in the suburbs of Chicago as a documentary filmmaker and teacher at Harper College.
