Dream Of, 2017
Pinhole photographs of these group of trees arranged in rows, on Sunset road, that I see every time I leave my house. I've been intrigued by these trees for years. It's something very different from the dry desert area, and that's exactly what I love about it. It's like a mini forest, which is not at all common here in Tucson. The ideas and concepts reflected in my photographs remind me of my future. I have always pictured myself moving away from this city. I have no specific place in mind but it is something about the large population and endless activities to do that makes other places so appealing. And because these trees are so unlike what I am use to, I am reminded of this dream of leaving. I do not want to live here all my life; I love the ocean, big cities, tall buildings, night life, and rainy places. I've lived in Tucson my entire life and have never once felt as if I belonged here, never have I thought this is the place where I would always stay and feel at home. This city does not have what I want from the world. There are no opportunities here for me to grow.... So, I suppose this is a symbol of what is yet to come for me later on in the future.
