In Colonial Echo, two series are brought together as chapters with texts that are excerpted interviews written in the format of a screenplay. The first chapter is work from the body of photographs Casa de Mujeres. La Negra, is the group of photographs that appear in the second chapter and represents my grandmother whose nickname was La Negra. The images describe La Negra, as she transitions to the United States with her younger daughter. The conflict is in attempting to assimilate to a new culture, where the history of color and the distinction in class, transforms their identity.
