Women Photograph: 2020 Year in Pictures

Dec 14, 2020
Very happy to share that a photo of my process this year of reunion with my family, ancestors and our present has been selected by @womenphotograph among the best photos of the year as turbulent as 2020. It is also beautiful to be sharing virtual space with so many women photographers - not binaries, it is feeling that our voices become a chorus. Congratulations to everyone! ūüíĖ

Doña Eloísa's grandchildren. Aaron and Abraham are the second twins in the family.

Koral writes, “This photo of my twin nephews is from my project We Were Always Here. It’s part of the epilogue ‘Journey to the Root,’ and it's about my family and the whitening of our history that hides the African root that is in our blood. It is a memory of where we come from, of our grandmother who never named herself Afro-Indigenous, but through our bodies, we claim our origin without erasing our history.”
