‘Abril’ by Celeste Ortiz

She is sublimation
She is the essence of thee
She is concentrating on
He who is chosen by she

 

I’m dancing barefoot
Headin’ for a spin
Some strange music drags me in
Makes me come up like some heroine

 

– Patti Smith

“This is a collection of self-portraits developed between 2013 and 2015. Since my interest in photography begun, I’ve been dedicated mostly to self-portraiture. I’ve used my own body and space, my room, to create these images, with film and instant photography as my medium. I am interested in the concepts of an inner world and outer world through limits of body, consciousness, and nature.” – Celeste Ortiz
