About Me

My photo
Hola! Hello! Bonjour! Szerbus! Ciao! My name is Catalina and I'm a freelance photogrher based in Charlotte, North Carolina. Hola! Me llamo Catalina y son una fotografa en Charlotte, Carolina del Norte. Although a straight-A student in high school, I loathed and somehow managed to skip Physics in order to print in the dark room. Now, with the passing of each day, I am more and more passionate about photography and the moments I can capture through my lens - abstract or otherwise. Enjoy!

Club Militar de Chile

For our first night in Chile, Sandra and her brother Renee and their mother, tia Nora, took us to one of Pinochet's buildings, which he originally built for his enjoyment and eventually became one of the go-to places for those serving in the Chilean Armed forces. Both Renee, Sandra and their father have served in the Chilean Armed forces.

this dinner was a TREAT!!

Even better than the army, though, were the photos that tia Nora caries with her. these are all photos that folks need for their National Identity Card - like a driver's license in the US but everyone - no matter how young, has to have one. They call it a "cedula." Well, tia Nora had photos of herself, her husband Renee, her son Renee, her daughter Sandra, her grandchildren and other family members.

It felt only natural for me to take photos of these photos in front of the appropriate family members present that evening. The photos i am holding for Sandra and Nora are from years ago. The photo I am holding in front of Renee is actually of Renee Sr. The father-and-son resemblance is truly amazing. The trio of female photos are tia Nora, her daughter Sandra and Sandra's oldest daughter Javiera.
