Book Release Party for ‘de’ by Victor Yañez-Lazcano

July 30, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 9:00 pm

ON DE, WORDS FROM THE AUTHOR:

de, which is Spanish for “of” or “from” is an ongoing body of photographic work that explores my family’s identity in the United States as it grows into a second generation of citizens. Predominantly settled in the Midwest, my family has grown to over 100 individuals, many of whom I have yet to meet, spanning a diverse socioeconomic spectrum with varying degrees of assimilation. In 2009, inspired by the myriad of oral histories, I began to document the members of my family and re-imagine narratives of transition as a way to better understand the social implications of our Mexican-American identity. Veiled in new traditions and sometimes accompanied by thick accents, my family’s brief history in the United States has allowed for me to witness a cultural shift that I believe is unique to the rural Midwestern Mexican immigrant experience.
