"'Desire' is another of my strong flower pieces. Desire's prominent red color represents love and passion. The textured background in the piece represents the chaos that often surrounds our truest love and desire. You must love the desire and the darkness it brings."
- 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.”
