Hello I am Kitty  (2012-2019)

Being an immigrant is an enormous challenge , this project provokes a reflection on the status of Latin immigrants in US, their cultural appropriation and new identities, ironies of immigrant life on the margins of a globalized world.

 Hello I am Kitty is the result of a personal journal to find my new “identity” viewing right through an eye hole in the head of my Hello Kitty costume while I ask for donations after posing for pictures in Times Square.

This project is a photo book produced by Tragaluz Editores Medellin Colombia 2019.
