Glendalis

Glendalis Sotomayor is the main subject of this work in progress, with her friends and family described as supporting cast. These pictures evaluate the life and world of a young Latina, by examining her and pieces of her world. The allegory poetically realizes the metamorphosis of girls becoming women.

I strive to determine if it is possible to truly know who a person is, or who they are becoming, by photographing them. The project’s value lies in this achievement: to witness how a photographer can rise to examine one person and pieces of their world.
