2011 - 2013
This is part of the second chapter in Safe Heaven. Her name is Delia and her color is blue.
I have photographed migrant women at their homes and during their daily lives. Homes have deep emotional meaning. Through their homes we get to know them, their motivations, their thoughts and aspirations along with the conditions they live in revealing how much they have achieved and struggled. They have painted and decorated their rooms according to their own personal story and choice. With both chapters I am exploring the notion of safety and confidence in relation to spaces.
Safe Heaven is a new interpretation of immigration using color as a unifying metaphor of diversity and acceptance.
