In the series All Woman are Maria, the artist examines the tension between the historically accepted ideal feminine and the reality of being a woman in a Latin society. An exploration of the relationship between the so-called "society" young women and Maria, the Virgin— each woman is photographed in her environment—such as the house she lives in, the room where she sleeps and the kitchen where she cooks. The tension between the ideals of being an adequate woman in Latin society and a liberal contemporary reality filled with possibilities, opportunities and independence creates tension in each woman’s life. This series is an outcry, a belief in these entrapped role’s these women feel culturally submerged too and the artist belief in their potential to break free.
