This photograph is a self-portrait inspired by the famous character from William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet tragedy but specially developed aesthetically in the actress who played the character in the 1968 film Olivia Hussey. The red color of her clothes symbolizes love and the rose withers her dead love, trying to create an atmosphere of nostalgia and suffering.

I’m a Cuban-born, self-taught photographer and visual storyteller based in the United States. I seek through my photos to capture the thought, human fragility, and its nature through surreal representations that are often an open question that makes you look more than once. My greatest passion is telling stories, not only to satisfy myself but to show others a part of themselves, through universal emotions and mysterious metaphors that fill the gap between visible reality and imaginary vision.
