A Conversation with Wendy Valdez

"A lot of people who were interested in my zines told me, 'I've felt this way,' or 'this is something that I have experienced,' or 'please make more, I want to work with you.' I think it was mainly connecting with others who have had a similar experience in life."

"With this series, I was inspired by women I find conventionally and unconventionally beautiful as well as women that inspired me for both positive and negative reasons.

A Conversation with Donna Kaz
