Over the Rainbow is a project blending fantasy-inspired studio portraiture and video along with documentary images to create a multi-layered portrait of a Cuban girls’ transition into womanhood. Widely celebrated in Latino culture, the quinceañera is a gender-specific tradition, wherein girls dress like princesses, inviting guests to celebrate their 15th birthday and transition into womanhood with a lavish party. The display of wealth is important, even in communist Cuba, where the tradition has transformed into a performance, with an emphasis on photo and video shoots. Girls hire photographers to create images of themselves posing in elaborate — and sometimes risqué — ensembles against fantastical backdrops. The images, a symbol of luxury and wealth, offer a different view of Cuba, allowing girls to live out a fantasy and perceived ideal of femininity. Only for one day, but documenting it forever.
