"Hometown' is a personal photographic project that comes from my interaction between my current situation and the space where I live, and that in some way, I am confined.
The Hometown photographic series arose as a result of having been fired from my employment. The start of this project happened subconsciously, starting to appear as I became aware I would soon be out of work. Only with the passage of time, did I begin to realize what I was shooting, and the series begain to take shape.
Although I studied photography and worked in the industry part-time, unfortunately photography has never been my main source of income. I have always worked in other areas to afford the day-to-day costs of living and investment in photographic equipment.
Hometown is not exactly a visual diary of my current situation but more a very distinct set of reflections. Reflections on my status of mind, frustrations, and goals. It is also a different way of looking at myself, and at the space in which I live."
