In my recent series, my mother plays the role of three women in one fictional Latin American home. These photographs can be read as portraits of my mother as her various selves — like a nested doll — and read as images that reveal the conflict of vanity, race and class that live within one woman, just as in one family.
In these photographs the three women, a pair of twin sisters, one lighter in skin color and a maid, are family and they hold both love and contempt for each other in equal measure, but they are also the love and contempt housed in one woman.
My fascination with identity of the self, and my personal relationship to my mother has moved me to make these photographs, an act that through photography and performance allows the real to bubble to the surface.
