"In Maracaibo, my hometown is always summer,

as in Toronto, it also has a lake where the sun also rises
every day. Therefore, I felt blessed and grateful when
I moved and settled close by the lakeshore of Toronto.
This photo series is the outcome of my process
to overcome nostalgia and cultural grief while adapting to my new country. It is about the area I love

dwelling in and where I started my new dawn". 
Mirna Chacín,2019

The photography series is inspired by Mirna’s nostalgia and yearning for Maracaibo, her hometown, its lake and everlastings summers while adapting to her new home by Lake Ontario in the Toronto waterfront.
