The Iberian Peninsula is a geographical concept formed by Spain and Portugal, two geographically united countries but separately by an invisible border.
THE IBERIANS is an essay about my travels through this territory, visually narrating the things that happen while wandering around Iberia (Spain & Portugal), how to write in a sketchbook. The knowledge of a specific territory gives depth and meaning to my project, that is why my work is a continuous journey through Spain and Portugal .
They are places where I explore the concepts of territory, border, light, memory and identity through the observation of the other. In The Iberians I rediscover the common places, their people, their culture, their realities circumscribed to a geography, in short I explore the human condition.

There was a first photography exhibition that made a huge impact on her. They were the portraits that Edward Sheriff Curtis had made of the North American Indians and to which he had dedicated 30 years of his life. The portraits were impressive, and the time spent on the project blew her away. She left the showroom wanting to do a long-term personal project.
This is how she start her personal project THE IBERIANS in which she has been working for the first two decades of the 21st century and in which she continue to photographing. [Official Website]
