Why bring me flowers when I’m dead? When you had the time to do it when I was alive. Is the title of my working photographic series where I make trips to the Downtown LA Flower Mart once a week. I select different combinations of flora for an arrangement of flowers for my home and for the home of my grandmother. Then I take pictures of the flowers in my home and I take a bouquet of flowers over to her house . The zine contains pictures of the bouquets that I give my grandma combined with poetry, sayings, and quotes from my grandmothers story that expresses the love and relationship we share.
The zines I’ve created are a combination of intergenerational experiences as a Latinx /Latina woman in East LA and in the San gabriel Valley . Which is based of my grandmas life and our amor eterno (forever love) for each other and our shared but different experiences growing up as Latina / latinx from the barrio to an affordable suburb.
