About the artwork

Photography: Manipulated on Paper. Size: 30 H x 30 W x 1 in This is how I remembered myself in the house I used to live in when I was growing up. I wake up to see the sunrise, bright and caressing my face to an almost dreamy glory. A memory, is its existence now and only nostalgia can bring those events back.
