Self-portraiture project for Portraits course at the University of Florida.
This project was inspired by my lack of exposure to the elements of an American childhood. Having grown up in Cuba, I have learned about many of those elements as an adult. I decided to create this series with an Avatar: The Last Airbender theme since this TV show was quite iconic for many children in the United States but I discovered it and enjoyed it as an adult.
