Es  una serie sobre como nos escondemos a diario dentro de nuestro mismo rostro, no importando lo que se siente o lo que se piensa, siempre hay una expresión al mundo que no necesariamente corresponde a lo que se siente o piensa.   "Me debo sentir bien, tengo que ser lo mejor, el mejor, tengo que ser alguien", pensamientos que nuestras sociedades nos forzan a tener en nuestras mentes, cada día, en todo lugar.   Uso una máscara formada por el mismo retrato del retratado para representar como nos ocultamos del  mundo de la forma mas sútil, usando nuestra expresión del día a día para ocultar nuestros sentimientos.

I'm working in a portrait series about how one can hide everyday behind its own face, no matter what you feel, no matter what you think, it's always about showing an expression to the world that not necessarily matches the inner feelings or thoughts. "I have to feel fine, I have to show the best, I have to be someone, I have to be the best", those are the feelings that our societies are forcing us to have in our minds, every day, everywhere. I'm using a mask of itself to represent how we hide from the world in the most simple way, using our every day expression to hide our origins and feelings to the world.
