This photo is a self-portrait inspired by Amelia Earhart, an American aviator celebrated for her flight marks and for attempting the first air trip around the world above the equatorial line. The sad story of this brave woman captivated me to make this self-portrait. She was known as Lady Lindy, for her resemblance to the aviator Charles Lindbergh, the first pilot to cross the Atlantic Ocean, from west to east. Some studies assure that Amelia died as a castaway on the island of Nikumaroro and others did not, the fact is that the mystery of her disappearance remains unsolved.

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.
