"HEADSHOT" Founders of Latin American Theatre in NYC - Photobook, ​2015-2016.

This a project I developed during my stay in the States, and it seeks to give recognition to the founders of Latin American Theatre in New York City. 
Using the headshot as the media (a photographic portrait that actors use as marketing or self-branding material) and the question what is your first memory that lead you to the theatre? as a starting point, we created this photobook about the founders of Latin American theatre in NYC.  
This project has been created together with the actress Natalia Miranda Guzman, and it consists of a photographic exhibition, a pocket book in English and Spanish and a possible publication of the full length interviews.
