Women of the Coachella Valley Part III

Women of the Coachella Valley Part III

Hello and Happy International Women’s Day! In honor of this special day, I am sharing Part III of my Women of the Coachella Valley series! You can take a look at Part I here, and Part II here.

As previously mentioned, I chose to focus on the real women of the Coachella Valley - in all of their diversity, and variety of work spaces. Several of the images from this series were featured in a small show at the Palm Springs Art Museum, but since not all of them made it, I wanted to share all of my favorites here.

This feature takes a quick look into the world of some of my favorite ladies and friends: Yaya Ortiz, founder of Culturas Music and Arts, and an advocate for women who suffer from domestic abuse at Shelter from the Storm. I got to take her pictures at her partner Ruben’s Ranch. Claudia Galvez, Chief Government & Community Affairs Officer for Clinicas de Salud del Pueblo. And Christy Gilbert Holstege who, at the time of this shoot, was in the middle of her campaign for a Palm Springs City Council seat. Needless to say, she won. ;)

Thank you for letting me capture your beauty and spirit, ladies! Our community is better because all three of you live in it!
