“Acte de Naissance”
( Birth Certificate )
Acte de Naissance ( Birth Certificate ) is a series consists of photographic images, portraying the artist’s, racial identity and social relation with others by extracting a family tree to create unity/acceptance to both of her races; As a biracial child, growing up was very difficult balancing both races, cultures, and traditions. I’ve always had an unbalance with my ethnicities. There will always be tension and counterbalancing of being considered Mexican enough, Black enough or even American enough. In the end, I have formed my own identity, I have decided to co-exist with the two while also celebrating both.
