LIDIA MARIA ISAAC DE MOTA
In 1994, my family left the Dominican Republic for New York City. Now, I spend my time participating in photography with the Bronx Senior Photo League and doting on my grandchildren.
I have always been interested in the arts. This year I learned to better understand my camera, and make better photos. Photography has a lot of power and an even richer history. I like to capture buildings, landscapes, flowers, animals, people, and objects because they have a deep meaning to me.
This pandemic made me see life in a different way. As a survivor, I am more optimistic and I am thankful to God for giving me the opportunity to be alive, to be patient, healthy, and to keep learning every day.
