DEPARTURES FROM HERITAGE
Similar to the scientific restoration of palimpsest manuscripts, this series is heavily investigative and focused on the refurbishment of evidence from the past. In this case, the past refers specifically to my heritage. As a first generation Mexican American born and raised in the United States, I often feel a loss of cultural identity. It is this loss that I attempt to capture and rebuild by layering hundreds of photographs of my relatives from Mexico and the United States dating back to the early 19th century. Combining digital manipulation with the appropriation of an early form of photography, I create a platform of deliberation about the enigma of fleeting time, the continuity of familial relatedness, and the history of photography as a medium.
