Danirfa is photographed in the home where she is a domestic worker, first wearing her daily uniform and then her formal one, which she uses to greet special guests during dinner parties organized by her employers.

What I found most interesting about shooting this project was the fact that Danirfa automatically assumed a different, more “proper” posture when wearing the formal uniform, without any instruction from my part.

This diptych was a finalist in the XXI Concurso de Arte Eduardo León Jimenes in 2006.
