19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Household Archaeology - Self Portrait

"Household Archaeology - Self Portrait" is part of a series of images created by scanning objects kept in my house. For this portrait, I placed two of them over the scanner and laid my face on top. Both of the items relate to my Colombian roots, traditions, and heritage. The first one is a handmade whisk broom, and the other is a metal puck called tejo, used to play a traditional game by the same name.
