Steffanie Padilla (b.1989, Riverside, CA) holds a BFA in photography from California State University of Long Beach and is a prospective MFA applicant. She is a conceptual photographer whose work explores matters surrounding the human condition, roles animals are given in various cultures and the term speciesism. By working intuitively and introspectively, the process of making allows for a spectrum of questions to emerge that can take on multiple forms including photographs, mixed media and video. She currently resides in Los Angeles, CA.
Cruces, is an ongoing photographic film series primarily about a small rural town located in Chihuahua, Mexicó. Having been the place where my mother was raised prior to immigrating to the U.S., Cruces has a long history and culture that stimulates questions about my own identity and belonging.
