  63. 63. Anna Las fotos transmiten mi forma de ver la vida, lo que representa la música para mi, la importancia que le doy a la felicidad, esas pequeñas cosas que no todos pueden ver y a mi me encanta descubrir a diario. Todas las fotos son simbólicas, la guitarra representa la música; el cielo es la luz que me alumbra cada día y me ayuda a ser mejor persona; el mar, es la ambigüedad que me representa, la calma y la tormenta por momentos.
  64. 64. Anna The photos convey my way of life, what music represents for me, the importance I give to happiness, those little things that not everyone can see and I love discovering every day. All pictures are symbolic, the guitar represents music, the sky is the light that shines on me every day and helps me be a better person, the sea is the ambiguity that represents me, the calm and the storm at times.

  66. 66. Danielle on Anna The first image Anna sent me showed me how much she loves music, and definitely showed me how she was a carefree, girly, and independent she is. The...photo...of the sun shining through the clouds...represents the good times through the bad and having fun. The next picture of the girl in the water is my favorite because it’s so happy and easygoing. Her next photo really interested me because I feel it represents...a homey, relaxing place that also makes us feel so small and insignificant. Her last picture also reminded me in symbolism of my last picture, of loneliness and fear of it and change.
  67. 67. Danielle
  68. 68. Danielle The balloons represent stressful problems... the only two ways of dealing with them are letting them go or letting them explode. In my case, letting them go is the better, less stressful choice. Following this photo, is another self portrait [that] shows my carefree side, which comes up again later. The next photo, of the moon is one that represents how I am ever-changing, and have many different sides. The photograph of the balloon flying away is a lot like my first image, with the balloon representing letting go [and being] carefree. My next photo is of a water bowl sitting out on the steps in the rain. I think this one is symbolic in the way that it represents the sense being left, or alone which is one of my greatest fears. The next photo is of a sunset where we go camping every year as a family tradition. The ocean...makes me feel so small, yet it can also be very refreshing, relaxing, and make me feel whole-two very different feelings. My last photo is of my favorite suitcase left out on our porch. Whenever I see it, I think of isolation, once again, something I fear. I think that although many people from my country may not attest this, I feel that many of us are surrounded by people but we feel very alone, and do not admit to it because of the fear that it is true.

  70. 70. Anna on Danielle Yo creo que las fotos de Danielle me demuestran como es ella, su personalidad, la importancia de la música de en su vida, eso lo note en la fotografía de un espejo con notas musicales. Las fotos de Danielle también me parecen simbolicas, la foto de la luna es una manera de expresar su vision de la vida, que a pesar de la oscuridad siempre va a haber una luz que la guie.Me impactó la belleza de la foto del paisaje con rocas, es un lindo lugar y el mensaje de esa foto es muy optimista, ese atardecer o quizás un amanecer me dice que luego de un dia, vendrá otro, que no deje para mañana lo que puedo hacer hoy.
  71. 71. Anna on Danielle I think Danielle’s pictures show me her personality, the importance of music in his life, which I note on the picture of a mirror with musical notes. Danielle’s pictures also seem symbolic, the photo of the moon is a way to express her vision of life, that despite the darkness there will always be a light to guide her. I was impressed by the beauty of the landscape with rocks, [this] is a nice place and the message of that picture is very optimistic; this sunrise or sunset tells me that after one day comes another, that do not leave for tomorrow what I can do today.
