Gala Ricote

In the midst of Los Angeles, over a cup of coffee, I had the privilege of meeting María Gabriela de Faría, a Venezuelan actress and singer. As our conversation unfolded, she graciously shared her personal journey with me – a story of resilience, ambition, and the perpetual cycle of nurturing one's dreams. It was in that moment that the seed of an idea took root, and "Blooming" was born.

"Blooming" explores growth, strength, and vulnerability in the lives of women, resonating with all dreamers. It captures moments in the journey of nurturing aspirations, celebrating resilience and the power to adapt.

The photographs portrays  Maria Gabriela  in her moments of vulnerability, courage, and strength, embodying the multifaceted nature of growth. Even in vulnerability, "Blooming" reminds us of our ability to water our dreams and cultivate the beauty within ourselves. It is a celebration of the journey and a tribute to the strength that comes from constantly nurturing our aspirations.
