The motive behind the creation of this series is to break the chains that bind us in life and be able to follow our heart´s vibrations. At this point, we eliminate the anxiety of the past and the future, we reach ourselves in order to live our present, trusting that will happen what needs to happen at its precise moment. I use the light that came through the window, for the different position of the subject, depending of the image. Then I started the photoshop process, to create the imagine as I imagined it when I planned the serie.

I am an electromechanical engineer, married and a mother of three. In 2015, I began my studies in photography and realized that this was my true passion. Little by little, I left my former job to devote myself completely to photography.Most of my images are self portraits because I want to make my body move as my mind imagines the subject. A lot of my work was born from the sensitivity I developed during my father´s disease. He was in a coma for 7 years -at this time I realized life is short and you never know when our journey will end.
