" Buscar Trabojo" is a photography project, which examines and reinterprets my own experience as a daughter of an estranged father. I installed job fliers around day labor pick-up locations and waited until they approached me. By playing the role of a director to create the scenes that represent my elusive father, I seek and try to realize compassion, desperation, inescapability and alienation in a real way.
* Buscar Trabajo is a Spanish classified advertising title for people who are looking for work.
