Andrea's Statement

"My project is about women who have gone through unexpected challenges that have made them stronger. The idea was inspired by my mother and aunt, two of my role models. As a single parent, my mom worked from sunrise to sunset while studying, raising a family, and struggling to pay off debts. Although she tries to hide it, you can see what she's has been through deep in her eyes. Both my mom and my aunt have inspired me by achieving their dreams while living independently. When my uncle passed away, my aunt had to work long shifts in factories and beauty salons to support her sons.

All of the women in my pictures were photographed and interviewed about the challenges they have faced and how those struggles changed their lives."


Andrea Abrego, Young Photographer Award, 2016

Congratulations Andrea for this beautiful project! We can't wait to show your entire portfolio on All About Photo and to follow your work from now on!
