The images in this series represent internal landscapes of the human experience – lands full of memories, dreams and secrets. They are visual metaphors that embodies the vulnerability of our mortal nature.
The themes for this work are very personal and come from real places and experiences from my time growing up in Lima, Peru, among them: the end of an idyllic childhood followed by strong societal pressures on young women, feelings of alienation from society and religion and living with fear during the terrorist attacks in the city. Every piece is associated with a particular emotion which is reflected in my work through these images featuring women of different ages. These photographic collages also incorporate objects associated with memories and writings from my journals.
These images were inspired by my personal history but I hope that this work transcends its origins and speaks to our universal humanity.
