Mazatlan Through My Eyes

Growing up in Seattle, I struggled over how to answer to people who expected me to know everything about my birthplace. I did not have that huge connection I was supposed to have. Sometimes, I felt like a tourist in my own ethnicity.

In 2006 after being exposed to the work of Manuel Alvarez Bravo, I was inspired to learn more about photography as an art, which led me to create a documentary about the daily life in Mazatlan, my city of birth. The Through My Eyes is an ongoing photography series. During this process, I hope to overcome the feeling of being a tourist in my own ethnicity while promoting awareness and respect for the cultural diversity of Mexico.
