Fictitious is a collection of photographs where Latine people transmit messages that suggest political, historical and social justice themes.

The characters are part of a fictional world where people are portrayed as heroic manifestations of Latine culture. Images of bridges, canoes, cowboys and astronauts allow us to imagine the unexpected, inviting conversations about the challenges and empowerment of the Latine community.
