It's All Relative

A photographic series observing relationships between individuals and cultural heritage, inspired by artistic and social elements of the Mexican Renaissance movement. Each set of portraits results directly from interviews that have taken place between photographer and subject. These conversations extend towards a larger audience of which you the viewer are a part.

"I am from Guyana, South America. I know for certain at least up to my grandparents are Guyanese. I feel Americanese." At age 10, Jonathan moved to Bedford-Stuyvesant, NYC, with his parents who wished to further their careers. "I'm like a chameleon. I can adapt to things around me, but I still maintain certain values. [My relationship with Guyana], it's largely through family. My basic core values were formed there [in Gayana], but in terms of my outlook on the world and a lot of people I interact with now [in NYC], they're not, truth be told, Gayanese."
