Cipitio is a project based on the Salvadorian folk tale of a little boy who was cursed to be unable to grow up.

Set in post colonial El Salvador, this personal project focuses on a nahualt girl, Cualli, who finds Cipitio in the forest and tries to civilize him and teach him the ways of the world, while he tries to teach her how to just let loose and have fun.

During this project, I had the amazing opportunity to actually go to El Salvador and take reference photos. I wanted to learn as much as I could so that I could pay true respects to the culture.
