La Identidad de Ella

(The Identity of Her)


Identity; What is it? How do we define it? How does society affect it? Why are our identities important? These questions are rooted deeply within the reflections on our daily interactions. How does every aspect of our lives help to define our identity; our clothing, music, friendships, family, education, and life goals; these are all elements of our identity that are always developing. These many pieces of our identity, but they never truly define us, so what does? Ourselves, we truly define ourselves. This series explores the multiple identities of Anna, through self-expression of her identity during a time of isolation. Each image display’s some form of her identity of a teenager, daughter, sister, student, and photographer. Each image tells a story of Anna and how she defines her identity and how she expresses her identity; through the style of documentary photography.
