People I've Met by Denice Flores
I started this series of portraits on 2016. The series reflects the connection I build with the people I meet.
As a foreigner I want to feel connected to the environment I'm in by finding people I can relate to. I search for corkiness and non traditional beauty, I see beyond the parameters what can be seen superficially. This portraits are a reflection of who I am and how I start to belong here.
I moved to the United States more then there years and a half ago and I still feel like a stranger sometimes.
People I've Met is dedicated to those who like me, are struggling to feel connected to the city and often feel lost in the streets of New York.
