Veronika Marquez’s Profile

MONTEVIDEO By Veronika Marquez
Verónica and Camila return to their country of origin to photograph themselves. This type of photography the family album photos. In this way, two meanings unfold in these portraits: on the one hand, that of marking one's presence in a particular place--the typical "I was here" expressed in tourist photos, and on the other hand, that of identity-the recognition of a certain belonging and pride in belonging, depicting for others the city of their origin.
