Hi, my name is Roberta Alvarado. I've been traveling through North and Central America with my camera by backpack since 2016. It allows me the freedom to take transportation to where the story I seek takes me. My current and ongoing project is an exhibit that appreciates Indigenous cultures from North and Central America. My work might be seen as having a dark edge but I see the beauty in life's cycle and see it as celebratory. I find value by recognizing life's fragility in hopes we may embrace the seemingly mundane tasks with intention while observing our global interconnectedness.
Photography is my first love. We met in high school and have been inseparable ever since. I'm drawn to it's truth, it's necessity to remember, to stay connected, and to, like myself, reconnect.
