Wounds of Violence
The series deals with geographical sites of Mexico where illegal, contemporary mass graves have been discovered, contrasting the local landscape that has been violated by these graves with the mental, physical consequences that these extremes has on women in the area. The photos portray women who have been subjected to these conditions, so searching for relief in alternative religions, drugs or the abuse have left visible marks on their bodies.
The focus of my work in the past years has been human violence and its impact on society and individuals. I have been working and living in Mexico in the past years with the aim of completing my visual research on this subject.
