    MIGRATION

    In this series, I explore the profound narratives embedded within the fabric of everyday objects, explicitly focusing on the versatile, colorful bags commonly used within migrant communities for many purposes—from carrying laundry and groceries to holding all of one’s worldly possessions when faced with homelessness.

    These bags, symbols of resilience and resourcefulness, are reimagined and elevated to the status of crowns, adorning the heads of those who wear them. Through this act of recontextualization, I aim to challenge perceptions and honor the strength, dignity, and individuality of migrant and transient populations. Each portrait in this series captures the essence of its subject, transforming the bags from mere containers of physical belongings into vessels of story, identity, and pride.
