Maria Celeste, is a series of accordion books that shows how machismo has affected the lives of both my grandma Maria and my mother Celeste. This project both serves as an homage to them and as a way to inspire conversation on how machismo affects Mexican women. The written story coming from intimate conversations, journaling, and creative writing from my grandmother, mother, and me. I wanted to honor their voices in hopes that other Mexican and Mexican-American women might relate and find power in their own stories and inspire conversation in the Latinx community.
