Exploring the vastness of Latin American culture across the United States
YO SOY LATINX
For Latinx Heritage Month we asked photographers across the U.S. to capture the vast diversity of their Latin American communities. YO SOY ________ showcases not only the visual differentiation amongst cultures, but brings context to the vast descriptive of how those choose to identify themselves. At Ceremonia we believe that we are not a monolith, but rather a myriad of individual different cultures, countries and histories that together, make up what it means to be Latin American. Featured artwork will be on display at our flagship store in Soho through October 15th.

Whether that'd be a birthday, holidays, or a simple family reunion -- This experience is one we can all relate to. It's a time that is spent around love, loud laughs, and delicious food.
I had the privilege of photographing individuals, each with roots spanning from Guatemala, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Honduras, and El Salvador. With this series, I aimed to showcase a rich tapestry of stories and backgrounds that collectively define what it means to be Latino in the vibrant communities of New York City.
Lovers/Fighters & the beauty of our own world we create around us. Natural or cultural it seems to have this deep root that connects us all. Seeing these things or even experiencing them first hand is what makes it important.
