For Yolanda is an ongoing exploration of portraits and possessions from my late grandmother, Yolanda. In 1994, two years before my birth, she succumbed to a brain aneurysm. Following her death, my grandfather compiled photographs, documents, and other mementos for posterity. The pieces allow me to envision my grandmother as a living being who migrated from Mexico as the daughter of a Diplomat to begin her life in America. This fragmented legacy has led me to investigate heritage, loss, and how imaging can construct new realities.
