My research regards images as elements to construct memory and knowledge, and it is based in the collection of images from databases, printed photos, and digital resources. These images are then transformed and filtered digitally and manually to enhance, distort to modify its meaning and agency. I am interested as well in making historical and memory wise connections and to create scholarship/knowledge by their association with other images and events in time.
