LA FAMILIA

LA FAMILIA (The Family) is an investigation of self-portraiture. It looks at self identity through the idea of close friends as a replacement of blood relatives. I grew up in a context where some family friends were closer to my small family than any other direct relative. Therefore, I missed the connection with other relatives through similarity in shared physical features. Over the course of two years, I digitally merged my facial features onto my closer friends' faces, creating a fictional group of relatives.
