This project is telling us about the searching for identity and difficulties that it implies.
The idea of this project was to work with two different models but try to represent them as parts of one.
Two parts of the same self that look like never are going to find each other. Each time they have an opportunity to see each other, they feel like ghosts, without recognizing themselves. Confused and uncomfortable, these eyes look at the viewer to shout without words, in silence with the only use of lights and colors.
Colores camouflage reality and make you feel in an alternative universe where everything is ever-changing, and nothing is safe. That is why photos alternated with antagonistic expressions. One moment it is full of energy, fearless, and in the next one, everything changes and despair takes over.
These photos make us look deeply into ourselves, find different emotions within us.
