En Medio de la Nostalgia is an art series that explores identity, multiculturalism, and Mexican-American border issues. As a half German, half Peruvian woman who grew up in Brownsville, TX, feeling stretched between four cultures has led to a strong interest in issues of identity in my photographic work. This body of work explores the similarities and differences between my four cultures (German, Peruvian, Mexican, American) through research, the exploration of creating photographs, and the use of symbolism related to each culture combining them to find new meaning that represents my experience. Through still lifes, portraiture, and archives I explore the history of my family throughout several generations.
