Masks in Mexico City

My travels to Mexico City are always inspirational. Last year, I began a series of masks and selfies made from real flowers. On this most recent trip, I embraced other available materials including miniatures, balloons, ribbons and paper flowers. I would take trips to Mercado Sonora and Mercado de Medellin, where I would buy supplies and return home to create masks out of them. Then, using the open light in my roommate's room, I would shoot my self-portraits. Follow me and check back soon for more of mask series.
