Artist Statement - pledesma

artist statement

My work depicts moments that transcend time, inviting self-reflection in one's own memory. These moments reflect my own evolving journey of self-understanding of childhood, identity, belonging, and community, evoking moods of nostalgia, empathy, loneliness, and hope.

Like my engineering and international economics studies, photography gives me a language to understand and engage in the world. Though my eye developed while living abroad, I now turn the camera towards home. The excited anticipation of my youth in setting sail across the seas has given way to a nervous curiosity in adulthood of unearthing buried stones in my own backyard.
