"Murmullos", Spanish for murmurs or whispers, is an ongoing project that deals with past and present violence in El Salvador. The murder of a close Salvadoran friend has prompted me to travel to Central America. Through concurrent research and photographic exploration, I have discovered that the violence in El Salvador is part of a complex legacy of colonial violence, in which the United States is directly implicated. As opposed to literal depictions of carnage, I am creating a series of photographs that subtly implies insecurity. I have been drawn to physically shallow, ambiguous spaces and scenes of disjuncture where I am able to reflect upon my friend's death, as well as the broader violence engulfing the region.
