My work has always dealt with my identity. This past summer in Ecuador while I worked on the multi media program of the Jahuay ritual harvest song I learned so much more than I expected . In their faces I found the history of my ancestors . Theses are the faces of the indigenous people of Santa Terresita , Ecuador . I strive to express the vibrant culture that is often ignored and undervalued, I tried to capture their identities , their innocence their sense of joy toward life.
