Abuela’s House : Series

Last year 2014-2015 I began a photo project / series called Abuela’s House. It’s a series where I document my life while I’m staying at my grandmother’s apartment. Every December, my grandmother, goes back to Cali, Colombia and stays there for about 2-3 months. While she’s away, I stay in her home and just live there on my own or sometimes with my other sisters. Last year the overall theme of this project was capturing my family, mostly my sister and her daughters and how we’re trying to raise kids all while dealing with our own  bullshit and figuring out who we are individually. This year’s theme ( December 2015-January 2016)  was isolation and coping with difficult emotions through self portraits. Here are a few shots from Abuela’s House series 2014.
