Cruces is a series about a town in Chihuahua, México where my mother was born and raised, and is an ongoing project exploring the concept of identity. Over the years, I have gradually become observant on how incredibly arbitrary and easily shaped an individuals developing identity can be based on his or her environment. With Cruces, I am interested in exploring the various factors that influence the town and its people, specifically by cultural norms and media. As I place myself in a vastly different yet familiar territory, my grandfather’s cattle ranch, family members, and objects marked by time, pose questions about my own world views by examining a space that has indirectly embedded itself into my existence.
