My focus for this project is the lives of Mexican cloistered catholic nuns in the XXI Century. For 3 years I worked on cloistered catholic female monasteries in Puebla, Mexico. I need the funds to produce the exhibition that will happen at Centro Cultural Santo Domingo in Oaxaca beginning April 10th, 2016.
