"'Bursting' is the centerpiece of all my artwork. It's the piece that is truly born of my energy and passion for creativity. One of the first flowers I ever photographed in my own style and take with me to every show or presentation I do. Bursting represents the strength of owning my truth and the beauty of being unique and imperfect. This is a photograph with a texture added post-process."
- Cynthia Perdigao

"As a photographer, I want to stand out. I want to create well done, well thought out images that convey an essence. I am deeply grateful that you have looked at my work."
After experiencing a stroke at age 6, Cynthia has significant weakness on her left side and limited use of her left hand, with almost no fine motor control. Though photography often requires physical labor that is especially taxing for Cynthia, she is empowered by her passion for taking photographs. Photography is a meditative practice for Cynthia that allows her to transcend the difficulties she faces.
Cynthia’s outlook on the role of an astute photographer mirrors her inspiring perspective on life: “great subjects are everywhere and will reveal themselves if you are not only seeing and looking, but also feeling and being. Feeling is an inherent reaction that we can reframe for the viewer.”
