Mirror-Window tells the story of a character whose reflection is "wrong", since, in reality, something like this would not be possible, questioning the perception of reality and photography as a copy of the merely visible world. In a poetic way, it seeks to disturb our way of seeing reality, just as Magritte did with his work "Not to Be Reproduced". It suggests that anyone is one but can be another, that some cannot see their reflection in the mirror, it tells us about secrets, intimacy, identity, and what can be inside and outside a window.

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.
