Las Fotos Project

by Eric V. Ibarra

Photography, one of the most commonly applied visual arts, has been used as a vehicle to deepen insight and develop communication during therapy and rehabilitation for over a century. Techniques involving the articulation of emotions and analysis of one’s photographs and self-portraits are often referred to as ‘Phototherapy.’ It is this type of self-expressive process that allows a photographer to become aware of certain unconscious emotions, often leading to development and growth as the process of self-realization begins to unfold.

The Latino secret ingredient to living a long life

by Felix Sanchez

My mom, Stella, turns 92 later this week.  I, like many other Latinos, am my parent’s caregiver.  My mom is in good physical health; the doctor has diagnosed her with Diminished Capacity—not Alzheimers, but what was called:  Dementia.  I call it forgetful old age.   She gained about 10 pounds in the last few years; she always exercised (played on a Lady’s soft ball team) and cooked with good health in mind, she rarely used salt, promoted fruits, vegetables, grains, fish, while serving red meat on occasion; and as a result, she has no diabetes, high blood pressure or heart disease.  I was not surprised when CDC reported last week that Latinos live longer than most in the general U.S. population, but not for the reasons mentioned above.

Waist not, want not

by Arlene Olivencia

Losing weight isn’t as awesome as television and media make it out to be.  For one, family doesn’t make it all that easy.  Immediate family tends to associate weight with looking “healthy.” If you’re a little on the chunky side they tell you “Te ves bien. Si pierdes peso, pierdes tu figura!” If you’ve lost some weight you get “Don’t lose too much or you’ll look sick,” making you feel like you’re one pound away from being as sturdy as a dandelion on a windy day.  Extended family members are always great for a self-esteem check.  They also have absolutely no regard for things like feelings when they say “Oh wow, you’ve gained a lot of weight.  Life must be treating you good! Estas enamorada eh?”  I’m convinced that mentality stems from not wasting food.
