LETICIA M. | Netzahualcóyotl, Estado de México – Elmhurst, Queens. LETTERS SENT BY JUANA TRINIDAD SERRANO

These letters are the memories of my youth in Mexico. They are filled with stories of the best moments of my life with my best friend, Juana Trinidad Serrano.”

What objects will you choose to accompany you for the rest of your life. Can you imagine, have you experienced that single moment when you have to decide what to take with you on a trip as full of dreams and hope as much as uncertainty and loss? The objects that will accompany you represent your culture, your family, your identity. In Reference To… is a photographic project about Mexican female immigrants across America, exploring issues of cultural identity and our relationship with personal objects. The New York series is comprised of 200 images, 100 portraits of Mexican women and 100 pictures of their most cherished objects that connect them with Mexico.
