16: Maria Lucia Garcia

My work is heavily influenced by the powerful and emotive art of Frida Kahlo, Federico García Lorca, and El Greco. Their work, which is deeply rooted in their culture and the struggles they faced, resonates with me personally and continues to inspire me to create thought-provoking and visually
striking images. Through my lens, I strive to explore and express the complexities of the human experience, particularly the emotions, desires, and struggles that are often hidden behind the surface. My photographs are an attempt to capture the essence of what it means to be human and to create a visual narrative that is both personal and universal.
