Estefania is a photographer and visual artist, born in Caracas - Venezuela. She uses her perspective as an immigrant WOC to highlight stories about culture, gender, minorities and social constructs. She is curious about finding untold narratives and translating them into visual form. As an artist, she is interested in using photography as a means to understand our attitudes and feelings, and opening discussions about uncomfortable important topics.
Good Birth is a visual exploration of Eugenics. This project is an attempt to understand Eugenics, its impact on society and the artist’s personal connection to this dangerous pseudo-science. Throughout the process, Estefania continues to raise questions about the bias that exists in science, about power structures, and about the repercussions of the categorisations that humans have created in order to control the uncontrollable.
