A Mightier Light

I’ve been instructed to be a female, I’ve been told the limits and parameters of what a women should be, under the gaze of a Catholic god. I was born in Lima, Peru, where the political influence of religion set a structure of binary roles in gender and in the validation of sexual orientations. A norm that pushes every ‘exception’ to exist in the limits of what is recognizable, relegated to a place of disadvantage not only political and social, but primarily humanistic.

My project is an exploration through photography and video of a Peruvian youth dealing with an ongoing struggle of recognition. I intend to create a series of bodies and voices from people embracing their own gender identity and performance, with their multiple layers of aesthetics and stagings. A mightier light for identities that were forced to live in the shadows, but set themselves free in the process of uncovering.

In order to make this project possible, one of my principal needs is to be able to afford travel expenses. I have the intent to explore different stories not only in the urban locations but also in the rural areas where it is harder to access. I believe that this project is a necessary voice to keep on a negotiation with the norm, moreover, a visual validation of our own multiplicity.

Any kind of support will be really appreciated.

Thank you!!
